One problem is that your scsh build is trying to make cig/cig, which it
should not do, since
- doing that requires a functional scsh to start with,
- it isn't necessary -- the cig/cig heap image you get with the
distribution tarball works fine.
so that make will believe this, too.

This warning occurs because when S48 loads in the scsh source, it is
trying to find the address of the compiled C function df_scheme_exec in its
innards. It means something's definitely wrong -- either S48's foreign-function
linkage system is borked, or the function's not there to be called. You can
find out if the function is there by saying
nm scshvm | grep df_scheme_exec
and seeing if you get anything.
