Okay, that implies the collections from the SVN version
is installed in /usr/local/plt/collects . What troubles me is the
/Users/rob/Library/PLT Scheme/371.3/collects. If the collections
in there stem from a distribution different from the SVN version
then you risk DrScheme uses the wrong one.

Unless of course /Users/rob/Projects/schemelibs is a symbolic
link to /Users/rob/Library/PLT Scheme/371.3/collects ?

But I'll leave it to the Mac users to tell you whether it
okay or not.
