Hi. I'm the maintainer of Racket on OpenBSD. It will be imported soon, 
be patient :) . You can download the port from 
github.com/jasperla/openbsd-wip or from ports@ mailing list (search 
"racket" in the archives).

If you still wanting to compile racket from outside of ports, read the 
comments in the Makefile of the port.

Your issue is a bug known of pixman on OpenBSD i386. I guess you can 
compile racket-textual because this doesn't compile "gui-debugger" or 
doesn't reach the broken part of pixman/cairo, I'm not sure. The bug is 
in a call to "sse2_composite_over_n_8_8888()" and 

You have two options:
- Use amd64. It works OK.
- Compile pixman (xenocara/lib/pixman) on i386 with sse disabled. 
. "make obj", "make clean", "make depend", "make" and "make install". 
Racket works when pixman doesn't use sse.
