I have packaged Scheme48 1.5 for Debian, based on the existing 1.3
package.  You can find it here:


It includes experimental support for a 32-bit amd64 package.

It uses CDBS.

It does NOT include the work described in assume-64-bit.diff, because
I lost interest.  The prelude to assume-64-bit.diff describes the
additional work needed to make Scheme48 work on pure 64-bit

It does not resolve bug #401855.

Jorgen is no longer an active Debian developer.

PS: Please note that SLIME48[1], a slime/swank backend for Scheme48,
only works with Scheme48 1.3, and the author (Taylor Campbell) has no
plans for adding support for Scheme48 1.5.  Therefore, upgrading
Debian's Slime48 package to 1.5 will break SLIME48.  SLIME48 is not
currently part of Debian.
