    8484If your egg requires your code to be linked against a specific library or certain flags (eg. {{-l}}) to be passed to the C compiler, you should specify them here.

     86Note that version is represented by a string.  That's because numbers can be tricky to represent versions.  Integers are usually not enough to represent minor/major changes, and floating point numbers require you to determine the number of minor releases a priori, otherwise you'll inevitably end up with version 1.10, which is numerically equivalent to 1.1, and that would cause problems when chicken-install tries to match versions to determine dependencies.
