The dance I do with OS X is a little different.  Every new PLT gets  
installed to /Applications (actually to /Applications/Added_Apps but  
who cares) and then I rename "PLT Scheme vX.Y" to just "PLT_Scheme"  
so that pre-existing paths will still work.  I change the space to an  
underscore because I had occasional problems with scripts with spaces  
in filenames.  Greg's /usr/plt looks great except some of my quick  
launch Mac tools aren't used to looking in /usr.
