I'm not sure what's going wrong. Here are some things to try that might
help us pin down the problem:

 0. Does

     /usr/bin/mred -N /usr/bin/drscheme -ZjmvqL- drscheme.ss drscheme
                                          ^--- added "j" to disable JIT

    fail in the same way?

 1. Does running

      mzscheme -qr ..../collects/tests/mzq.ss

    fail any tests (where "...." is the path to the main "collects"

 2. Does `drschemecgc' work? To get `drschemecgc' `make both' and `make
    install-both' insteda of just `make' and `make install'.
