#773: chicken-install uses user umask
 Reporter:  retroj                 |       Owner:       
     Type:  defect                 |      Status:  new  
 Priority:  major                  |   Milestone:  4.8.0

 'chicken-install -s foo', because some installed files are installed with
 the umask of my user account in effect, even though they are owned by

 Note lack of read permission for non-root users for two files above.  This
 causes subsequent problems when installing other eggs whose setup requires
 to read these files.  It happens with other eggs too, not just setup-
