If setup-plt doesn't compile it then PLaneT won't either. Does the 
package contain an info.ss file that has the name field set? (I don't 
know why you'd see compilation at all, even with an archive built using 
`pack', if this isn't the case, but it's the only thing I can think of 
that might be wrong.)

Also, out of curiosity, is there any reason you're not using the 
make-planet-archive function in (lib "util.ss" "planet") to build your 
.plt file?
