Huh, actually, it *does* fail to install!
I thought I had picked the wrong version (switching computers too many
times...) but I had not.
It's a 64bits processor on a 32bits Ubuntu, and the installation fails with
the above message.

If I choose a non-Unix-style installation, the installation works, but
launching DrRacket fails with the same error:
% /usr/racket-
/usr/racket- 1: /usr/racket- ELF
: not found
/usr/racket- 7: /usr/racket-
Syntax error: Unterminated quoted string

This does not occur with

Any hint?
