you are welcome to check the setup script of the IUP egg: The import
libraries are all compiled to * shared objects and the
install-extension commands only list those * files to be
installed but for some reason chicken-install decides to reinterpret
these commands and installs the *.import.scm files instead.

Unfortunately I don't remember in which CHICKEN version this behaviour
changed, but I'm sure that chicken-install behaved differently at the
time I created the setup script for the IUP egg.

I have no idea whether that the change was intentional but since it
doesn't really break anything I never found it worth investigating.
