[plt-scheme] permissions and the plt help desk

My help desk hasn't worked for a long time. It launches, but I never get any
search results, even when searching for "list". Today I had a chance to look
into it. Is the help for a persons personal help files (help files from
plant packages installed in /home/username/.plt-scheme/) supposed to be
installed in the main plt directory?

I get this message when doing a setup-plt as a user:

setup-plt: Installing Help
delete-file: cannot delete file:
"/usr/local/plt-2005-11-05/collects/doc/help/hdindex" (Permission denied;

Which makes sence, because /usr/local/plt-2005-11-05 is owned by the
administrator so that users can't break the instalation. However this file
is empty. It just contains 4 bytes

Is there a way to force the users version of this file to be stored in the
users directory?
