You have to cd into the source directory. So, assuming you have extracted
the sources into "c:\tmp\chicken-4.6.3", do

cd c:\tmp\chicken-4.6.3
mingw32-make PLATFORM=mingw PREFIX=c:/chicken
mingw32-make PLATFORM=mingw PREFIX=c:/chicken install

After the last command, "c:\chicken" should (among other stuff)
contain a "bin" directory. You can add this to your PATH and
everything should work from there on.

Happy new year!
