Can you check to make sure you own all the directories?  You should, but
maybe something funky happened.

If you do:

   $ chown -R plragde "/Users/prlagde/Library/PLT Scheme"

to forcefully reset the user ownership, then try installing another PLaneT
package.  Do you see the same kind of weird permission problems?
