Probably.  I think it's easier if you install the latest release (get
it from

You'll need the following Ubuntu packages:

- gcc
- libc6-dev
- make

Then, just uncompress the chicken-2.732.tar.gz file, compile and

   $ tar xzvf chicken-2.732.tar.gz
   $ make PLATFORM=linux
   $ make PLATFORM=linux install

You can use the PREFIX variable to specify an alternative installation
path if you want (something like "make PLATFORM=linux
