As per the Chicken README, symbol GC is disabled by default,
but may be enabled globally at compiler build time, or per-app
at runtime.

          Always enable garbage collection for unused symbols in the
          symbol table by default. This will result in slightly slower
          garbage collection, but minimizes the amount of garbage
          retained at runtime (which might be important for long
          running server applications). If you don't specify this
          option you can still enable symbol GC at runtime by passing
          the `-:w' runtime option when running the program.
