I have been installing chicken for years now locally only. For this
I do have a subdirectory ~/chickens which contain the full chicken
tree of each version ( / / master / etc) installed
there with the PREFIX set to ~/chickens/whatever while building.

To access a particular version I do have a symling in the chickens
directory "use-this" which points to the corresponding version. My
PATH includes ~/chickens/use-this/bin and I use chicken-select to
switch between versions. chicken-install just works fine with this
kind of setup. It is easy, no hassle to set up additional environment
variables and it works just fine.

Maybe that's also a valid option for you?

Kind regards,


P.S.: You can find chicken-select in the chicken-belt egg.

May you be peaceful, may you live in safety, may you be free from
suffering, and may you live with ease.
