Thanks for getting back to me.

I'll try that... I haven't looked much further into this, since I didn't
know whether sandboxes don't play nice with symlinks on purpose. Apache
HTTPD, for example, looks upon them with deep suspicion.

Is there any merit to this kind of paranoia when it comes to racket?
