Re: #1727: chicken-install srfi-18 fails on Windows

CHICKEN is already "built" - I installed it via Chocolatey, which presumably 
was configured correctly.  I have been able to install a number of other eggs 
correctly using "chicken-install {egg-name}", which is the syntax that I would 
expect in cmd.exe (as it is the same syntax one would use in e.g. bash).

At this moment in time, it is beyond my ability to fix the installation system, 
alas.  Given that several other eggs installed without issue, it would seem to 
me to be a per-egg problem, rather than a systemic problem with how I am 
working (although I might be mistaken about that)...
