chicken bootstrap fails on epel7
Last modified: 2016-08-16 20:52:51 EDT
There is an issue with the chicken-126.96.36.199 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.
