[plt-scheme] mzscheme and R6RS macrology

I have trouble getting the following code to run under mzscheme (it
works fine on Ikarus):

;;$ cat mz-test/bar.sls

(library (mz-test bar)
  (export bar-definer)
  (import (rnrs))
  (define (bar-definer alist)
    (lambda (stx)
      (syntax-case stx ()
        ((k name sym)
         (let ((val (cond ((assq (syntax->datum #'sym) alist)
                           => cdr)
           (with-syntax ((v val))
             #'(define name 'v))))))))
;;$ cat mz-test/foo.sls

(library (mz-test foo)
  (export foo)
  (import (rnrs))
  (define (foo)
    '((a . 1) (b . 2))))
;;$ cat test.scm

(import (rnrs)
        (for (mz-test bar) expand)
        (for (mz-test foo) expand))

(define-syntax def (bar-definer (foo)))

(def x b)

(display x)

;;$ PLTCOLLECTS=":`pwd`" mzscheme -f test.scm
;;mz-test/bar.sls:16:16: compile: unbound identifier (and no #%top
;;syntax transformer is bound) in: define

Under Ikarus, the program sucessfully runs and prints "2", as intended.

Perhaps someone can shed some light on this?

Thanks, Rotty
