[plt-scheme] libmzgc.a, libmzscheme.a on Mac OS X?

Thanks for the suggestion. As it turns out, none of the installers--X11 
or Aqua, .dmg or .sh--includes the appropriate files. (I assume that 
these are static libraries? I know nothing of C/C++ compilation.) After 
more hunting and experimentation, I discovered that the binary 
distributions at 
http://download.plt-scheme.org/scheme/binaries/ppc-osx-mac/ do.

Now I get a different error upon compile:

ld: table of contents for archive: 
/Users/michaelmanti/usr/local/plt/lib/libmzgc.a is out of date; rerun 
ranlib(1) (can't load from it)
ld: table of contents for archive: 
/Users/michaelmanti/usr/local/plt/lib/libmzscheme.a is out of date; 
rerun ranlib(1) (can't load from it)
make[1]: *** [Vim] Error 1
make: *** [myself] Error 2

So, I'm off to try the source distribution.

Thanks for the pointer, though. It got me looking in the right places.
