False alarm. It turned out to be a bad copy of the Simply Scheme files. Don't know why, though. Thanks anyway.

Hello Lawrence,

Are you only loading the exact file from that URL?  Which version of
CHICKEN are you using?

If I do the same in any of the last three releases (these are,
4.10.0 and 4.11.0), it loads the file without any complains:

(c) 2008-2016, The CHICKEN Team
(c) 2000-2007, Felix L. Winkelmann
Version 4.11.0 (rev ce980c4)
linux-unix-gnu-x86-64 [ 64bit manyargs dload ptables ]
compiled 2016-05-28 on (Linux)

#;1> (load "simply.scm")
; loading simply.scm ...

So this seems to indicate you're either testing with a very old version
of CHICKEN, or you've already made some changes to the code from that URL.
