SCSH works well, and it's built on scheme48.

On NetBSD-1.2_BETA (i386 and sparc), all you do is:

$ ./configure
$ make
$ 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 and, 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.
