I've filed , which reports an isue
about ambiguity in csc's command line options.

Maybe CHICKEN 5 can be a good opportunity to fix that issue, since
backward compatibility is not such a big compromise,

Some options we have:

1. require a space between the parameter and the argument.  So, `-lfoo'
   would be an invalid option and `-l foo' would mean "link against
   libfoo".  -lfa2 would be a valid option, and would NOT mean "link
   against libfa2".

2. support GNU-style command line options, that is, --<long> and -<l>.
   Then we'd have --lfa2 to ask chicken to perform an additional
   lightweight flow-analysis pass and -lfa2 to link against libfa2.

Any other ideas?  Comments?

Best wishes.
