I'm not sure if the latest osx version embeds the binary plt modules in
the scratchpad binary - we've started doing this on some platforms to
make it easier to provide packages, but it means you can't load them
into drscheme. 

In this case, it would be ideal to provide fluxus via the planet - is it
possible to distribute binary modules this way?

We've recently had something of a combinatorial explosion in terms of
OS's, packages and flavours of install of fluxus - hopefully in the next
bit we'll figure out a good way of approaching this.
