Those directions work for v.103, too.
Note that on MIPS/Irix platforms (and, presumably, others that
support dynamic loading of shared libraries), you can pre-link the
"libgc.a" & "libmzscheme.a" together into a single "libmzscheme.so"
[or separate .so's, whichever], which makes executables which embed
MzScheme quite small. E.g., the executable for the test program given
in the above URL ended up being only ~22 KB (stripped) on Irix 6.5.5:
% % cc -g -o foo -rpath $cwd -I../../include foo.c -L. -lmzscheme
% ls -l foo
-rwxr-xr-x 1 rpw3 engr 22020 May 21 21:10 foo
% /bin/time ./foo '(+ 12 34)'
real 0.211, user 0.130, sys 0.051
Not as fast-starting as Perl or /bin/sh, perhaps, but good enough
for most interactive uses...
