Okay, I'm building with ccmake from now on.

No.  My path is set up so that the Cygwin directories preceded the
Windows directories, always.  In any case, I don't have native cmake on
the system at all.

We have the same gcc, yes.  I update Cygwin every few days, and
specifically did so yesterday and today.

I'm using Windows XP SP2, no MinGW, no Platform SDK.

The fact is that when I remove your symbolic links and rename the
underlying files by hand, everything works fine.  And when I patch lines
1119 and 1122 of CMakeLists.txt to say "copy" instead of "create_symlink",
everything works fine.  (I didn't bother adding a "remove", as the extra
files are harmless.)  But when I don't do these things, "csi -R srfi-1"
doesn't work.  And that is just as true whether I run cmake or ccmake;
the process is doing the same thing in either case.

Try it my way on your system.  If it works for you and it works for me,
that sounds good to me.  Here's the post-install script I'm using:

cd /usr/local/lib
rm libchicken.dll.a
rm libuchicken.dll.a
mv libchicken-0.dll.a libchicken.dll.a
mv libuchicken-0.dll.a libchicken.dll.a

I also recommend running the following brute force "zap-chicken" script
after "make" and before "make install", which makes very sure there is
nothing lying around from earlier Chicken builds:

cd /usr/local/bin
rm -rf *chicken* cs[ic]*
cd /usr/local/lib
rm -rf *chicken*
cd /usr/local/include
rm -rf *chicken*
cd /usr/local/man/man1
rm -rf *chicken* cs[ic]*
cd /usr/local/share
rm -rf chicken

I'm also sending you the patch with "darcs send".
