Ah, that explains it. DrScheme avoids compilation of files in the
collections tree, as some installations don't have write access there
and the .zo files there are generally assumed to be up to date (by
running setup-plt).

Altho such moves would have been more normal in the past, nowadays we
try to discourage that (well, the positive way to put that is we try
to make things work with relative paths and the like so that people
don't feel the need to do that).

Is there some reason in this case why you need to that?
