Here is my .vimrc file (in case you don't know about .vimrc, it's a file in
my home directory with the name of .vimrc (note the preceding period)::

set cindent
set smartindent
set autoindent
set expandtab
set softtabstop=2
set shiftwidth=2
filetype plugin indent on
set incsearch
set ignorecase smartcase
set hlsearch
set confirm
set statusline=%F%m%r%h%w\ %{&ff}\ %Y\ [ASCII=\%03.3b]\ [HEX=\%02.2B]\
%04l,%04v\ %p%%\ [LEN=%L]
set laststatus=2
set number
" Remove trailing whitespace on write
autocmd BufWritePre * :%s/\s\+$//e

With that .vimrc, I simply load up a .scm file.  And I edit it.  And then
before saving, I go to command mode (hit the escape key), type V (to enter
line-based visual mode), use the cursor keys to highlight the lines that
need to be indented, and press the = key.  Voila; the indentation is fixed
