I find the dependency on the previous version of rscheme a gross hack.
Did you have the chance to talk to the previous maintainer and/or to
upstream and see if this is the correct behaviour? For what I
gathered from the INSTALL file, make stage0 (which is alredy in
debian/rules) should generate a temporary rs 'compiler', much like
when you compile gcc.
The debian/rules file talks about a problem in that *not* using an
existing rscheme would cause the final binaries to have hardcoded
paths inside. If that's true, I think this is a bug to be corrected
and/or reported upstream, and not something to circumvent this way.

Why exactly can't you build the package? A log of the build would be
By the way, I think that it's not correct to put the definion of
OPEN_MAX in process.c. I think we should
in the file, as the inclusion of limits.h clearly indicates that
rscheme people want to play by the rules. ;)
