I don't know much about raco, but I looked at its web page documentation

Raco has many sub-commands; which ones do you want to use?

If you want to compile a file to a dynamically loaded library in Gambit,
you just

gsc library.scm

which generates library.o1 (or a higher number if library.o[123...] are
in use already) and then to use it you

(load "library")

If you want to produce a stand-alone executable you do

gsc -exe program.scm

If originally Gambit was configured with "--enable-shared" then
executables will be small and will load the runtime library at run time,
otherwise executables will be linked with the Gambit runtime and be larger.
