SCSH works well, and it's built on scheme48.
On NetBSD-1.2_BETA (i386 and sparc), all you do is:
$ make install
ta da. :)
You will note that SCSH is Olin Shivers's scheme shell, which
has rather good interfaces to UNIX for shell or systems programming.
Print out scsh-manual.ps and scsh-paper.ps, both found in the
same place as the distribution. Read the NEWS* and TODO* files.
Read doc/big-scheme.txt, too. All this will give you a good overview
of the features and drawbacks of scsh/scheme48. The newsgroup
is a good place to discuss bugs and problems, or to contribute code.
The FAQ for comp.lang.scheme also has various pointers to implementations,
information resources and the like. I don't think there's much there
that's NetBSD-specific, though.
