Version of chicken has been uploaded.

CHICKEN is a compiler for the Scheme programming language. CHICKEN
produces portable and efficient C, supports almost all of the R5RS
Scheme language standard, and includes many enhancements and
extensions. CHICKEN runs on Linux, MacOS X, Windows, and many Unix

I have claimed maintainership for this package, so please let me
know if you run into issues.
