You're just bumping into an arcane Unix thing, not a Racket problem.

You have to either put the "PLTCOLLECTS=" at the beginning of the same 
command that invokes "racket", or you have to use "export".

The following two examples should work (note the backslash at the end of 
one of the lines, for the command that spans multiple lines).

#! /bin/sh
PLTCOLLECTS="/home/don/.plt-scheme/4.2.1/collects:" \
   /home/don/bin/racket -t 

#! /bin/sh
export PLTCOLLECTS="/home/don/.plt-scheme/4.2.1/collects:"
/home/don/bin/racket -t 

BTW, if your project will be open source software, I suggest using 
PLaneT development links instead of "PLTCOLLECTS".  PLaneT development 
links have their own difficulties, but McFly Tools makes it easier.
