Well, it turns out that, if I try to install the .plt file manually, I
get a permission denied error---the regular DrScheme MacOS X installer
installs everything as root, but the .plt installer never asks for an
admin password or anything.  Unfortunately, installing via the Help
Desk never gives me an error message.
