There is no steps done after the setup-plt step.  You can also use
`make plain-install' to avoid the setup-plt step completely, and run
it manually afterwards.

At some point I suggested making the setup-plt step use the `--no-user'
flag, which disables planet and user-specific collection builds, but I
think that there was some reason to not do that.
