Some minor comments:
beloning -> belonging
"in Scheme48 exec package" -> "in Scheme48 exec package"
In the section about defining the SCSH_LIB_DIRS environment variable,
there should be a note about non using a directory that ends with a
slash to avoid a recursive search in the directories.

but here the plural "packages".
pkg-def.scm must reside in the current working directory, right?

So PERMS is an integer?
I would prefer Scheme 48 instead of Scheme48, because that's Richard's
and Jonathan's punctation, but see also http://mumble.net/s48/.
