chicken-install on windows fails from other drive than C:

Component: extensions Version: 5.1.0

Estimated difficulty: easy

Description

When calling chicken-install on windows. The generated build batchs files do a cd to the egg folder, but the active drive is not changed. As a result compilation fails with a file not found error.

For example:

D:\>chicken-install srfi-1
building srfi-1
   d:\chicken/bin/csc -host -D compiling-extension -J -s -regenerate-import-libraries -setup-mode -I C:\Users\Mark\AppData\Local\chicken-install\srfi-1 -C -IC:\Users\Mark\AppData\Local\chicken-install\srfi-1 -O3 -d0 srfi-1.scm -o C:\Users\Mark\AppData\Local\chicken-install\srfi-1\srfi-1.so
csc: file `srfi-1.scm' does not exist

Error: shell command terminated with nonzero exit code
1
"C:\\Users\\Mark\\AppData\\Local\\chicken-install\\srfi-1\\srfi-1.build.bat"

So after

cd "C:\Users\Mark\AppData\Local\chicken-install\srfi-1"

a c: should be done.

Just noticed that decompose-directory crashes with a low-level type assertion error on Windows... Got to fix that first
