What do you think about adding an option to the configure script 
to be able to use "-U" without patching Makefile.in?  This would
make external packaging easier.  I.e. when building a .deb you
really don't want the build process to go looking in your
~/.plt-scheme directory.  (For me it broke the .deb build because
I had some junk there..)
