Hm. It did for me. Here's what I did from the prompt before sending my
previous message:

[robby at robby-laptop] ~/git/exp/plt/src/build$ racket

I just tried it that way (after deleting my planet cache) and it is
also installing version (2 1).

Maybe if you send the log it would help illuminate the difference (you
can click "show log" in the bar at the bottom that shows planet's
progress in DrRacket).
