Description Yaakov Selkowitz 2015-11-26 04:45:39 UTC
There is an issue with the chicken-4.9.0.1 tarball (which was never bootstrapped in Fedora, presumably due to being a micro point release) which prevents it from being bootstrapped.  This prevents bootstrapping chicken on new EPEL architectures.

If a rebase to 4.10 (which apparently does bootstrap) is not planned for epel7, then the workaround is to add an "%else\ntouch data-structures.c" to the bootstrap conditional which precedes make.

It's bootstrapped now.
