Yes, I used the following build command, nothing special really:

mingw32-make PREFIX=c:/chicken PLATFORM=mingw C_COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_OPTIONS="-O2 -pipe"

Anyway, I think I found where the problem lies: Line 86 in extras.scm contains this:

Apparently, the C files used for bootstrapping were generated on a unix machine - which means that the C files will always contain the unix-specific code branch, unless they were regenerated on the target platform. Shouldn't this kind of check be done using C preprocessor instead?
