[Chicken-users] setup question

I couldn't find this in the archives, sorry if this is a stupid question:

1) Installed chicken-1.0 on a RedHat Linux 7.3 x86 system
2) Tests and examples all work fine
3) Attempted to install 'awk.egg', 'ssax.egg', etc. No go.

Following the instructions in the manual about installing extensions I did the following:

> downloaded 'awk.egg' from the eggs unlimited site
> su root ;(chicken is installed in /usr/local/...)
> csi -setup ;(initializes registry)
> csi -setup awk ;(supposed to install extension)
extracting files from extension `awk` ...
building extension `awk' ...

At this point I assume that awk should have been either copied to a known location or the current location is referenced within the registry but neither of those seemed to have happened since I can only (require 'awk) successfully when the current directory contains 'awk.scm'. So, what am I doing wrong?
