I don't.  I can see some mileage in providing a /usr/local binary tarball
that may work on some common distributions, but I can quite appreciate the
developers not wanting to waste their time doing RedHat's job.  Something
the size/complexity of PLT Scheme doesn't package easily -- you have to know
the packaging system *and* the software quite well.  PLT are already very
good with the software, so let's let them concentrate on that and help us
packagers when necessary.  Having a binary tarball would be a help, as we
could compare with that if we can't make the packaging work quite right.
