Another issue: main.rkt doesn't seem to be working for me.  Here's what I'm

I have a link to a local package:

bash-3.2$ ~/local/racket/bin/raco pkg show
Package(auto?)    Checksum                                    Source
c                 81c46fbc1ce318f2733ad9dfce10930be3b4c93a    (pns c)
stardate          #f                                          (link

whose directory structure is:

bash-3.2$ ls -l stardate
total 0
drwxr-xr-x  3 dyoo  staff  102 Nov  8 10:48 date
bash-3.2$ ls -l stardate/date
total 0
drwxr-xr-x  9 dyoo  staff  306 Nov  8 10:53 stardate
bash-3.2$ ls -l stardate/date/stardate

-rw-r--r--  1 dyoo  staff    91 Nov  8 10:47 main.rkt
-rw-r--r--  1 dyoo  staff   776 Nov  8 10:53 manual.scrbl
-rw-r--r--  1 dyoo  staff   771 Nov  8 10:51 manual.scrbl~
-rw-r--r--  1 dyoo  staff  1734 Nov  8 10:47 tng-stardate.rkt

When I try to require date/stardate, I see the following error message:

> (require date/stardate)
default-load-handler: cannot open input file
  path: /Users/dyoo/work/stardate/date/stardate.rkt
  system error: No such file or directory; errno=2

However, I can still refer to the main module explicitly:

> (require date/stardate/main)

So something about the resolution of main.rkt isn't working yet.  What
other debugging info can I provide?
