Sure, no problem.  From scratch:

   $ git clone git://github.com/dyoo/whalesong.git
   $ raco planet link dyoo whalesong.plt 1 20 whalesong
   $ raco setup -P dyoo whalesong.plt 1 20
   $ cd whalesong/tests
   $ racket run-more-tests.rkt

The last command should open up a new web browser window.  Leave the
window opened and in focus: the test harness will send testing
commands and run the compiler on the files within

If the compiler fails on any particular file in
whalesong/tests/more-tests, you can run the compiler on a single file

   $ racket whalesong-cmd.rkt build [name-of-test-program]

which should produce a better stack trace if compilation fails.
