Remove any excess fat from chicken. Heat chicken, giblets (except liver), neck, water, salt, curry powder, lemon juice, cloves and mace to boiling in Dutch oven; reduce heat. Cover and simmer until thickest pieces of chicken are done, about 45 minutes.
Remove chicken from broth; cool chicken 10 minutes. Remove chicken from bones and skin; cut chicken into bite-size pieces. Skim fat from broth; strain broth. Add enough water to broth, if necessary, to measure 4 cups. Cook and stir onion in margarine in Dutch oven until tender.
