Yes.  It is in the standard release of Gambit.  You need to use the option "-target js" to gsc.  For example:

% cat fib.scm
  (not safe)

(define (fib n)

(define (fib n)
  (if (< n 2)
      (+ (fib (- n 1))
         (fib (- n 2)))))

(fib n))

(define start (real-time-milliseconds))

(println (fib 30))

(define end (real-time-milliseconds))

(println (- end start))
% gsc -c -target js fib.scm
% js fib.js
