Did you build a bootstrap compiler and retry?
Lately there've been quite a few changes that break bootstrapping
in annoying ways, but once you have a working bootstrap compiler you
can compile a bootstrap compiler from git, and with that build Chicken
from git.

I built a chicken this afternoon and it worked, AFAIK there have been
no new commits pushed since then.
