[racket] "file dependency: ..." log messages with PLTSTDERR=info

I just added an item to
https://github.com/plt/racket/wiki/Intro-Projects under "Code

* Find uses of log-xxx (using the global logger), and use 5.3.2's new
`define-logger` form to change them to use their own logger. That way,
users can filter the log messages. Examples might include "optimizer"
and "file dependency" categories of messages.

(If anyone disagrees, it's a wiki, please feel free to revert my change.)
