Ok. Some day I'll try to do that (if no one will outrun me).
Meanwhile I built Chicken with shared libs on MinGW. There is some
hacking though. For those interested:
1) ./configure
2) edit Makefile to set BOOTSTRAP_PATH
3) edit libtool, change 'deplibs_check_method' value to "pass_all" (it
seems that libtool tries to be too smart, giving stupid results).
4) mkdir $MINGWDIR/lib/.libs;
  cp $MINGWDIR/lib/libws2_32.a $MINGWDIR/lib/.libs
where MINGWDIR is the where MinGW is installed
5) make, make install, enjoy
