That helped, but make install-cgc has problems now:
[root at sparcy ~/plt-5.0/src/build]# make install-cgc
make install-cgc-common
make install-common-first
mkdir -p "/root/plt-5.0/bin"  "/root/plt-5.0/collects"
"/root/plt-5.0/doc"  "/root/plt-5.0/lib"  "/root/plt-5.0/include"
"/root/plt-5.0/lib"  "/root/plt-5.0/man"
cd racket; make install-cgc
make headers
./racketcgc -cqu ../../racket/mkincludes.rkt "/root/plt-5.0/include"
"../../racket" .
