The problem is that --collection-plt skips the "compiled" subdirectory.
This fact does not appear to be adequately documented (you'd have to
look at the docs for the general `pack' function, then infer how it's
used). I'll fix the documentation.

In CVS (exp-tagged), I've added a --include-compiled flag to mzc, since
this seems useful generally useful.

Meanwhile, if you have to use an older version of setup, I think the
only option is to call `pack' directly.
