Add slatex chicken sources since Dorai doesn't seem to have the time to update the slatex package by including this code and I don't want to accidentally lose this stuff.

4To update slatex, fetch it from http://evalwhen.com/slatex/
5Also fetch the latest scmxlate from http://evalwhen.com/scmxlate/
6then move slatex-sources/chicken-slatex-src.scm into the extracted dir.
7
8Then run "csi scmxlate" from the slatex toplevel directory (you can copy
9scmxlate.scm to that dir, or run csi with the full path to it).
10
11Answer the questions scmxlate asks you, and you'll end up with a few
12generated files.  Of those, only slatex.scm is important. The wrapper
13script "slatex" is replaced by slatex-program.scm in this distribution
14and the callsla.scm wrapper that ensures slatex is only loaded once is
15not needed for compiled libraries.
16
17Overwrite slatex.scm in this egg dir with the newly created version,
18and overwrite slatex.sty and cltl.sty with the updated versions.
19
20If you need to make changes in slatex itself, contact Dorai Sitaram
21and provide patches to him. If you need to make changes to the Chicken
22wrappers (the dialect file), please make them in the slatex
23distribution and provide patches back upstream to Dorai. You can generate
24a new slatex.scm using the newly patched version.
