[plt-scheme] hop web framework on PLT Scheme?

I am fairly new to scheme and everything around it.
Somehow I stumbled over hop (http://hop.inria.fr/), a language for web 
development that is obviously implemented in scheme.
It looks very good and I would like to try it out and play a little 
around with it. But they say you need to install bigloo 
(http://www-sop.inria.fr/mimosa/fp/Bigloo/), which seems to be a scheme 
to native compiler. Now I can not install a working bigloo on Mac OSX 
intel, the latest stable release does not compile for some strange, 
platform specific reasons and the latest alpha release makes trouble 
when I try to compile and install hop finally (it has no threads, so hop 
complains about that - and it also crashed a few times while compiling 
hop sources).

But hop is in scheme in the end... so my question is whether it can be 
run on PLT scheme? Has anyone tried this already and was successful? PLT 
scheme is ready to go on my MacBook...
