More the gzip library. Specifically. that it would be convenient to
specify the toolchain required for cross-platform eggs; and provide
some kind of package that provides those tools, either as linked
libraries or a set of command-line utilities.

To be fair, MSYS and Cygwin both ought to have the tools required. But
certainly the standard MSVC environment does not. I don't believe that
Chicken *must* provide these tools for the developer; but consistency
across platforms would strengthen the value of the Chicken-eggs
system; and making life easier for developers (and users) of Chicken
would be a good thing.

I'll try running vcvars32.bat next time I'm at the office (where my
CMake installation is). Thanks.
