I guess the info stuff was the only thing that it didn't install. Despite the make status is okay it looks very much like an error (e.g. a valid error accidentally suppressed).

To John Cowan:
Perhaps installation of the info should be silently skipped when installing as non-root?

I tried to install chicken to my home directory:
make PLATFORM=linux PREFIX=/home/tero/chicken install

Seems that the installation script assumes locations that require root/sudo:
install -m644 /home/tero/chicken/share/info
install-info  --infodir=/home/tero/chicken/share/info
* Chicken: ( A compiler that translates Scheme source

As far as I can see, the installation has been successful.

Can't you execute

  LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/tero/chicken/lib /home/tero/chicken/bin/csi
