Hi all,

in the meantime I understood why chicken-install would not install dependencies:

 chicken-install -n

While messing around I did not want the egg in the current directory to be installed. Just the dependencies.

Apparently chicken-install passes the -n switch down to the dependencies it need to install.

Those are then not installed, which makes chicken-install barf at the depending eggs.

Maybe it makes more sense to have the -n switch only in effect for the egg in the current directory while still installing dependencies.

This is just odd: The .egg file contains (dependencies srfi-18);
chicken-install did the download but not install it. So compilation
failed until I manually did

chicken-install srfi-18

That's weird.  We don't observe this behavior on any of the automated
tests (

It is.  But it seems consistent in my setup.

I tried: `chicken-install srfi-13`: this did the download for srfi-14 compiled and failed to install srfi-13.
