Well, there's XScheme but it has nothing to do with MIT-Scheme. 
XScheme is in C and was written by the same person (David Betz) that
wrote XLisp.  The XScheme that I've gotten to compile on the Amiga
is version 0.20 and runs fairly well with my '020.  I downloaded the
sources from the MIPS Magazine's BBS*.  The source is about 700K
(uncompressed) and the Amiga executable is about 90K.  The original
source was intended for the Lattice C compiler but I have added some
small changes so that it would compile with Manx 3.6 (sorry, no 5.0
yet).  I could make everything ftp-able if you (or anyone else) want.

  This BBS also carries the latest versions of XLisp and XScheme.
