Do you mean tranfering a statically linked program to the router?

I'd then need to cross-compile Chicken, and using the produced binary,
run the Chicken compiler? (Cross-compilation is done within the
OpenWRT build environment).

So -- how do I do that? (Cross-compile an egg) I won't be able to
run the target chicken compiler.

This is what I imagime:

1- build chicken-host
2- compile the egg to C using chicken-host
3- use gcc from the cross-build environment to compile the egg for the
   target architecture

How do I do step (2)?  (I'm only used to chicken-install, don't know
other ways to compile eggs)

That is what I thought, from looking into the code. I'll work more on
the other option.

Thanks a lot!
