	Glad to hear it!

	Well, Chicken now contains the debian/ directory, currently used
	to facilitate the creation of unofficial `.deb's.  Perhaps you
	shold review it.

	I've suggested to link Chicken against the host version of PCRE
	instead of the one supplied with Chicken itself [1].  Felix has
	recently committed a patch [2] which simplifies the change.
	Could this change be adopted for the official Debian package?

	There's a small thread starting at [3] which points a few
	problems with the current Debian packaging.  Could you please
	review it?

	I hope to make some patches (namely, `srcdir' support and
	`CHICKEN_LIBRARY_PATH' support) soon, which may be of a
	particular interest to the Debian users.

	Strange enough.  Hope you'll receive this one.
