Thanks Eli, Matthew,

I have it building now with --prefix=dir and --enable-shared
Now the only problem is make install is crashing:

raco setup:  in syntax
Racket virtual machine has run out of memory; aborting

I've tried running racet setup -l 
afterwards, it gets a little farther but again runs out of memory.
I'm on a box with 32G of memory (12 free) but only
2048M of swap....

I've been doing some googling to try to find a solution.
It seems like other people had problems as well on freebsd and windows.
(I've increased my user limits with the limit command)
