It looks like the db collection was not listed as part of the textual 
distribution. (It should be in the full distribution, though.) Unless 
anyone objects, I'll change it to be part of the textual distribution 
for the next release, 5.3, due later this month.

To add the db collection to your build, go to the Racket root directory 
(the one that contains the "collects" directory) and run

   git archive --remote=git://git.racket-lang.org/plt.git v5.2.1 \
     -- collects/db | tar x

That will fetch version 5.2.1 of the db library. Then run

   ./bin/raco setup

to compile it and build the documentation.
