I just can't get this working.

I've finally been able to get chicken installed and working, but I had to pretend to be cygwin.
I think there's errors in the mingw-msys Makefile, or my assumptions about it are wrong.
I would expect:
  - "Makefile.mingw" to produce files for MingW64 in a windows cmd shell
  - "Makefile.mingw-msys" to produce files for MingW64 in msys2 shells (bash etc with unix paths)
  - "Makefile.cygwin" to require some kind of cygwin setup, which I don't have

I found this site:

This time, I compiled under an MSYS shell (not MingW64)

    $ make PLATFORM=cygwin install

I still needed at least a chicken.exe from the previous installs I did, but it compiled and installed fine.
It also was able to install an egg:

    $ chicken-install uri-common
    fetching uri-common
    fetching uri-generic
    installing uri-common

which subsequently works in a csi shell:

    #;2> (import uri-common)
    ; loading /usr/local/lib/chicken/11/ ...
    ; ...
    #;3> (uri->string (update-uri (uri-reference "") path: '("example" "greeting") query: '((hi . "there"))))

So I finally have an install that honours the unix paths.

In the MSYS shell, my versions are:

$ uname -a
MSYS_NT-10.0-19043 teeny 3.2.0-340.x86_64 2021-08-02 16:30 UTC x86_64 Msys

$ make --version
GNU Make 4.3
Built for x86_64-pc-msys

$ gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 10.2.0
