Comment (by sjamaan):

 Hi there!  I think this isn't a SRFI-18 specific problem, but rather a
 `chicken-install` problem.

 It looks like you might have missed the CHICKEN build instructions from
 the `README` file:

           - When installing under mingw, with a windows shell
             ("cmd.exe"), pass an absolute pathname (including the
             drive letter) as PREFIX and use forward slashes. If you
             are building the sources from git, use backslashes to
             specify the path to `chicken' (the "CHICKEN" variable).

 Note that this requires you to use forward slashes, probably because of
 this issue. Of course, if you can fix CHICKEN and `chicken-install`
 specifically to make it work with backslashes that would be great too.
