I'm failing to compile PLT Scheme v372 under Debian 6.0 "Squeeze" 
GNU/Linux i386.

When running make, it eventually fails with the following error message:

> Done making xform-collects.
> env XFORM_USE_PRECOMP=xsrc/precomp.h ../mzschemecgc -rq ./xform.ss 
> --setup --cpp "gcc -E -DNEWGC_BTC_ACCOUNT  -I./.. -I./../include" -o 
> xsrc/bool.c ./../src/bool.c
> Error [GCING] 133 in ./../src/bool.c: Function double_eqv declared

Full make output at http://pastebin.com/swirHWVS
Tested without additional configure options.

Building from the Debian source package at [1] yields the same error.
[1] http://snapshot.debian.org/package/drscheme/1:372-1/

I'm a student sysadmin and need to provide this for our workstations.
The teaching staff requires this specific version because it's what the 
subject textbook covers.
I am told an update is on the works and will use Racket.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
