Hello all,

I downloaded the 4.2.5 sources, configured and compiled. When I issue
make install I get the following after a bit:

make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/pmatos/Applications/plt/plt-4.2.5/src'
mzscheme/mzscheme3m -X "/home/pmatos/Applications/plt/plt-4.2.5/collects" -l setup

make[1]: *** [install-3m] Error 1

This happens if I try to install in place or to a different directory. I
am under Ubuntu Karmic.

Wonder if this a bug or something I am missing, even though I have been
building <plt-4.2 without problems.
