The web page


claims that "guibuilder.plt" works for v102 through v103, and it's
probably right. It's old.

The CVS-based version, which you found in 


should work in v208.

As far as versions on .plt files, the error message "cannot install;
archive is for a older version of PLT scheme" means that the archive
was created before archives had associated version numbers, so there's
no way to say which version it's for.
