[racket-dev] 5.3.2 & mac os x

Works and looks good on my MacBook (Mac OS X 10.8.2)!

The only thing is that it is bit unusual to install/move a folder into Applications. E.g., Mathematica installs everything in a package connected to the graphical Mathematica binary (starts when double-clicking on the icon). All the command line binaries are inside this package then (accessible via ordinary file paths). Wouldn't something like that also be nice for DrRacket and the rest of the racket installation?
