I've just had a look and this test group seems to be specifically testing
the library's behaviour when an implementation-provided random-source is
used. Is that right? If so, I think it's fine to leave this test disabled
for CHICKEN since it doesn't actually provide any such random-source;
instead, one would just use the sources provided by srfi-27, I expect? And
that already seems well-covered by the tests.
That's just my two cents, though, please let me know if I've misunderstood
how these libraries hang together (or the purpose of the test, I suppose).
