Just to get a few facts straight:

It looks like you compiled Chicken 2.3, whereas Chicken 2.2 seems to be
present in Debian unstable. So which version is the Debian maintainer
trying to compile?

And Debian 3.0 is also called Woody. I think Woody uses GCC 2.95.3. The
Chicken maintainer is compiling against Debian Sid (= unstable), which is now
using GCC 4.x AFAIK.

BTW, if you use pbuilder to build your packages, you can compile directly
against unstable, without having to install unstable packages on your machine.
