After some brief attempts, I was unable to make this work.  I suspect
that part of it may be that since I'm using the OpenBSD ports
infrastructure to build it (I dislike having third-party software
installed that's not in the packaging system), and Racket is my first
go at creating a port, I've either got something configured
incorrectly (probable) or there's some weird interaction with the way
the infrastructure builds Racket (less probable).

For the moment, 5.1.3 works fine.  I'll either mess with my 5.2 port
more when I have time or  just wait until whenever the fix for leak
you committed gets into a release to upgrade.

Thank you for your help.
