How?  I tried to wave you off in the first paragraph:

    This README delves into the details of building MIT/GNU Scheme
    from source on GNU/Linux.  If you found this README in a binary
    distribution, you probably want the installation instructions in
    ../doc/user-manual/mit-scheme-user.info node "Installation", also
    available online at http://www.gnu.org/software/mit-scheme/.

    The rest of this file assumes you were able to successfully complete
    an installation...

I would like to see that, but I never learned to use VPATH, and do not
use proprietary operating systems.  I dare not muck about in the build
process more than I have already.  I tried to KISS it with something

        #! /bin/sh
        (cd src; ./configure $*)
        (cd doc; ./configure $*)

But that does not do justice to `./configure --help'...
