My "~/.racket/planet/300/5.1/INSTALL-LOG" on GNU/Linux contains *zero* 
LF or CR characters, despite reflecting a few PLaneT packages having 
been installed.

First guess: someone is getting the log text line-by-line without 
newlines, and forgetting to add the newlines when sending the lines to 
the log file.

If Robby means that his log contains LF and/or CR characters, maybe he's 
using a different Racket version, or is on a different host platform.
