Is there anything compiler-specific on the wiki to indicate that it
wouldn't work?

The only page I can remember offhand that talks about portability is and that has some mentions of the
Sun C compiler.  From that it's unclear whether Chicken works with
gcc on OpenSolaris or not, but that makes sense; there are just some
useful data points to indicate that someone tested it with this or that
version and that it worked for them.

 and scientifically rewarding, but also because it can be an aesthetic
 experience much like composing poetry or music."
