[racket] Problem with packages in Racket 5.0

This problem is now fix in the git repo.

Specifically, the problem was that Planet (or `raco setup') would drop
entries from "cache.rktd" when the corresponding package has "info.ss"
instead of "info.rkt". Of course, almost all Planet packages currently
use "info.ss".

Thanks for the report!
