In fact, I do this. I suppose running mzscheme manually or using mzc  
are relatively uncommon, and these are the only real reasons I can  
see for wanting to put PLT Scheme in the search path. I almost always  
work in DrScheme, and part of my "installation routine" is to drag it  
to the dock. The link I set up is just

~:$ ls -l /usr/plt
lrwxr-xr-x   1 root  wheel  31 Jan  7 15:33 /usr/plt -> /Applications/ 
PLT Scheme v369.3
