We have been using Chez Scheme, a commercial product which runs on
Apollo DN3000/3500's, Sun-3's (I don't remember if it runs on Sun-4's),
and VAXen. It is an outstanding system, comprising a very
high-performance compiler and a complete language implementation. 
It isn't very expensive (I don't have the price list at hand, but it
runs about US$1K per copy, with site licencing at about $10K, and
educational discounts of 50%), but it's an excellent value. 

The publisher is Cadence Research, in Bloomington, Indiana. Sorry, but I
also don't have Cadence's address at hand, but you can email to Kent
Dybvig <cadence!dyb@iuvax.cs.indiana.edu> for more information.
