I'm not sure that this is the cause of the problem you are seeing, but 
you probably want to use an absolute path there.

Also, if you are running as CGI, be aware that your Web server might run 
the scripts as a different user than you think, with different process 
environment variables, or even under "chroot".

By the way, Racket has been used very successfully in Web CGI and SCGI 
for a decade.
