[PATCH] chicken-install: Consider two location layouts

Attached is a patch that hopefully improves the usability of
chicken-install in "offline" mode (i.e., fetching eggs from a local
directory instead of egg servers).

The main use-case would be using eggs from a git repository of egg
sources [0][1].

Example of workflow:

  $ git clone git://

  # Set `location' in setup.defaults to point to the directory where
  # eggs-5-latest has been cloned into

  $ chicken-install <whatever-egg>

In that case, eggs will be installed from the local filesystem.  To
update egg sources, users just need to update the copy of the git

[0] git://
[1] git://

All the best.
