I just checked in linux, and i cannot reproduce the problem.  I
installed neil/sicp by running a simple rkt file in DrRacket, and it
reported some problems with soegaard/sicp while building the scribble
docs, but nothing else (and the package code seems to be alright).

One thing to try to see if Geiser's the culprit here is opening a racket
terminal session outside emacs, and entering the module using Racket's
enter! macro:

If that works, the problem is most probably on Geiser's side and we can
try to debug things via mail if you're patient enough :)

There are two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation,
naming things, and off-by-one errors.
