Re: [Chicken-announce] Chicken released

Hi all,

We received a couple reports of problems building the tarball on 
systems without Chicken already installed.  This was due to an incorrect 
timestamp on the file buildtag.h.  To correct this issue, we uploaded a new 
version of the tarball with everything identical but the timestamp updated; 
this will prevent a rebuild of build-version.c from the Scheme source, so a 
pre-existing Chicken is no longer required.

If you have already built Chicken successfully, there is no need to rebuild, as 
no code has actually changed.  This only affects users who were unable to build 
from the tarball.
