[Chicken-users] chicken-install from behind a proxy?

I successfully installed Chicken 4.2.0 on my machine (Debian 5.0, 64
bits Intel). However, I cannot install any eggs; the problem seems to
be that I am sitting behind a proxy:

> address@hidden:~/dev$ chicken-install kanren
> retrieving ...
> connecting to host "", port 80 ...
> TCP connect timeout
> connecting to host "", port 80 ...
> TCP connect timeout
> Error: extension or version not found

FWIW, the error message says "TCP connect timeout", but a network
capture shows that this is really the name resolution which is failing
(which is just a peculiarity of the network setup here).

I had previously no problems using chicken-setup and chicken-3.2.7
(chicken-setup -proxy kanren successfully installed
the kanren egg). Could you please help me around this problem? In case
this is one feature that is already on the todo list for
chicken-install (and just hasn't been ported from chicken-setup yet),
I'd appreciate any hints as to which files and functions to modify to
make this work.

Thanks in advance,
