If the archive is not unpacked in a collection directory --- either
"plt/collects", the add-ons "collects", or something in PLTCOLLECTS ---
then it's not really a "collection".

For the compilation step to unpacking, the .plt installer looks for an
actual collection to compile, and presumably it doesn't find one.

So, I think you're seeing the intended behavior, in the sense that the
compilation step is intended to work (so far) only for packages that
are installed as collections.
