In that case, the full path would look like:

  (setq scheme-program-name "/wherever/you/have/racket")

An OSX application is (AFAICT, IANAOSXU) a single .app directory with
everything in it, different from unix applications that are exploded
over several directories according to the FHS -- so the two are
incompatible.  In any case, it looks like the only thing that you
needed from a --prefix is something you could get with a symlink.
