[MIT-Scheme-users] MIT/GNU Scheme on Emacs on macOS

I heard maybe Chris would know about this.

I installed MIT/GNU Scheme from here:

After setting the MITSCHEME_LIBRARY_PATH to /Applications/MIT-GNU and creating a symbolic link, I am able to type "scheme" in my terminal and the REPL appears and works fine.

I want to try to get the REPL working in Emacs, so I set the Scheme Program Name to /usr/local/bin/scheme which is my symbolic link to the mit-scheme file. Then when I do M-x run-scheme it opens a buffer which says:
"/usr/local/bin/scheme: can't find a readable default for option --band.
searched for file in these directories:

Inconsistency detected.

Process scheme exited abnormally with code 1"

I was getting this error even in terminal, but setting the MITSCHEME_LIBRARY_PATH environmental variable fixed it. It is set to where it's saying it can't find a default option for --band, though.

When I do M-x getenv MITSCHEME_LIBRARY_PATH it is set there properly. I thought it might've been the environmental variables not available to Emacs, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Any help?
