One important change might cause breakage of existing code: CHICKEN will
now error out when you use -c with multiple files (see #1655) for more
Another change that might expose bugs in existing code, thereby

Please give it a test and report your findings to the mailing list.
Here's a suggested test procedure:

$ <some dir>/bin/chicken-install pastiche
If you want to build CHICKEN with a compiler other than the default one,
just use C_COMPILER=<the compiler> (e.g., C_COMPILER=clang) on the make
Of course, feel free to explore other supported build options (see the
README file for more information) and actually use CHICKEN 5.2.0rc1 for
