contain executable stack sections[1]:

 * RWX --- --- usr/bin/chicken-bug
 * !WX --- --- usr/lib64/libuchickenchicken-4.1.0.tar.gz:apply-hack.x86-64.o
 * !WX --- --- usr/lib64/libchickenchicken-4.1.0.tar.gz:apply-hack.x86-64.o

Looks like patching apply-hack.x86.s and apply-hack.x86-64.s does fix the issue according to scanelf/readelf from the pax-utils package.

FYI, prior to patch:

~/scheme/chicken-4$ scanelf -qe *
!WX --- ---  apply-hack.x86-64.o
RWX --- ---  chicken-boot
RWX --- ---  chicken-bug
RWX --- ---
RWX --- ---

After patch and make:

~/scheme/chicken-4$ scanelf -qe *
RWX --- ---  chicken-boot

After make bootstrap:

~/scheme/chicken-4$ scanelf -qe *
