Great, it's nice to see the speed of the development, thank you to all

> Feedback Welcome,

Se here is a bug report concerning the Fedora 7 x86_64 installer. I am
running Debian Lenny on amd64 but the 4.0.2 installer used to work just
fine. The output is attached:

$ ./plt-4.1-bin-x86_64-linux-f7.sh 
This program will extract and install PLT Scheme v4.1.

Note: the required diskspace for this installation is about 193M.

Do you want a Unix-style distribution?
  In this distribution mode files go into different directories
according to Unix conventions.  A "plt-uninstall" script will be
generated to make it possible to remove the installation.  If say 'no',
the whole PLT directory is kept as a single (movable and erasbale)
unit, possibly with external links into it.
Enter yes/no (default: no) > yes

Where do you want to base your installation of PLT Scheme v4.1?
  (Use an existing directory.  If you've done such an installation in
   the past, either use the same place, or manually run
   'plt-uninstaller' now.)
  1 - /usr/... [default]
  2 - /usr/local/...
  3 - $HOME/... (/home/marek/...)
  4 - ./... (here)
  Or enter a different directory prefix to install in.
