We are at scsh 0.5.3, scsh is at 0.6.3 in the meantime.

Most important changes (see also

Now supporting SRFI 2, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 16, 17, 19, 25, 26, 27, 28, 30

         didn't want to work with 0.6.3
    b) scsh installs scheme48.h in /usr/pkg/include, should be renamed to scsh.h
       => there's patch-aa which does this, but doesn't apply now
