Chicken-install does not work on .egg files.  Chicken-install has its
own system, based on a CGI program named 'henrietta', which has a custom
format for storing the files.  In any case, the egg you are using is
a Chicken 3 egg, just like the egg docs you linked to is the docs for the
Chicken 3 mysql egg.  There's currently no MySQL egg for Chicken 4, but
Daishi Kato is working on a port.  There are Chicken 4 eggs for
Postgresql, Sqlite and Tokycabinet at the moment.

The official list of Chicken 4 eggs is this:

"The process of preparing programs for a digital computer
 is especially attractive, not only because it can be economically
 and scientifically rewarding, but also because it can be an aesthetic
 experience much like composing poetry or music."
