#1324 closed defect (wontfix)

setup-helper setup does not respect CHICKEN_INCLUDE_PATH

Reported by: retroj Owned by: kon
Priority: major Milestone: someday
Component: extensions Version: 4.11.0

Estimated difficulty:


In the setup-helper egg, its setup includes the following step:

(copy-file "setup-helper.scm" (chicken-home))

This fails with a warning if chicken-home is read-only, and advises that it will be necessary to use CHICKEN_INCLUDE_PATH to use setup-helper. Instead of only trying (chicken-home), it should respect CHICKEN_INCLUDE_PATH itself if that variable is set, like eggs that use setup-helper do, via copy-to-home.

Usage of setup-helper as an include, rather than a module, is deprecated. Doing anything to support this usage doesn't make much sense to me.
