I think so, yes, because it includes Andreas Voegele's patch, which
apparently does what I want. I cannot test it right now since
SourceForge's CVS server is down, but just by looking at it I would
What is really needed is a way to install scsh in a temporary
(staging) directory and then move the contents of that directory to a
final location. With Voegele's patch this looks doable by passing the
final directory name to "configure" (as --prefix) and the staging
directory name to "make install" (as DESTDIR).

Ok, I would say that there is some demand, since at least the Debian
and Fink users who have problems using pp.scm would be happy to have a
fix. OTOH, I don't want to annoy you with that, as I said I can at
least work around the problem with a patch for now.
