Using the `--enable-libs` flag to `configure` should get you
"libracket3m.a" in the installation's "lib" directory after installing.
If you're using the top-level makefile from the git repository (as

http://plt.eecs.northwestern.edu/snapshots/ or
http://www.cs.utah.edu/plt/snapshots/), then

 make CONFIGURE_ARGS_qq="--enable-libs"

should work.

For Windows, you specifically need "libmzgc.dll" and "libracket.dll",
which are the CGC variants, as opposed to "libracket3m.dll"? I've put
recent builds here:
