I tried that, with one small change (extra plt in my dev-path):

   PLTCOLLECTS=":/Users/gknauth/test/plt/plt/collects" setup-plt

I discovered a few things before I got things to work.

I had been working in:
porting doc.txt to doc/manual.ss and doc/info.ss

When I ran setup-plt your way, I noticed all the .scrbl files that  
were processed were either in (a) or (b):
(a) collects/module-name/module-name.scrbl
(b) collects/scribblings/module-name/module-name.scrbl

and they were ALL in /usr/local/plt, not in my dev directory.
If I wanted my new scribblings to be recognized, I had to do this:

rsync -az $NEW/parser-tools $INST/
PLTCOLLECTS=":/Users/gknauth/test/plt/plt/collects" setup-plt

Probably at that point a setup-plt w/o PLTCOLLECTS would have worked  
too, since setting PLTCOLLECTS didn't cause my dev-tree changes to get  
picked up.

Anyway, I have something working, thanks for the help.

I'd like to confirm that putting .scrbl files in (a) or (b) as shown  
above is current accepted practice?
