Done, but I saw an error once during a build of racket-minimal-6.0.900.900-src.tgz during 'make install'. I accidentally destroyed the terminal and wasn't able to reproduce the error after two additional tries, so I'm not sure what went wrong but it was something like

raco: building scribblings/framework.rkt
  sqlite3: unable to read from database

I'll try once or twice more to see if it happens again.
