These errors are caused by module paths in your docs. I don't know
what is wrong with them, but that might help you fix the problem.  I
also suggest you fix the errors below in your local install, to make
debugging a bit easier.

There are (I think) two bugs in PLT. First is in


Line 127

[else (error "unexpected value rendered: ~e" e)]

should not have the ~e (or should call format).

The other is in


Line 998

I think it should read

`(a (font ([class "badlink"])

Near this line, change the when statement from (when #f to (when #t to
get somewhat more useful debugging info.
