Hi all,

We've noticed for a while that chicken-5 eggs fail to get installed under
Salmonella, but we never managed to figure out what caused it because it
was "unreproducible" on local installs.  See for example

Turns out this has a pretty simple cause: Salmonella creates a clean
environment.  This is done using chicken-install -init, and this fails
on CHICKEN 5 because we failed to keep a list of installed files up
to date.  The list is actually marked "XXX keep this up-to-date!" :)

I've talked to Mario about this, and he will work on making Salmonella
present this error situation more clearly (it ignored the error exit
code from chicken-install).  Attached is the patch to fix the situation.
I've reordered all the files, to make them alphabetic (this should make
it easier to verify everything from "lib/8" is installed).
