[racket] raco setup broken if behind softlink

if i use a softlink on linux to call raco, raco setup behaves strangely  

Reproduce with
raco setup -xiIdD --no-planet --avoid-main --force mycollection
[compile output]

ln -s `which raco` myraco
./myraco setup -xiIdD --no-planet --avoid-main --force mycollection
open-input-file: cannot open input file
   path: <<current director>>/mycollection
   system error: No such file or directory; errno=2

 From what i could trace, the link gets passed to racket via -N and raco  
setup somehow uses this to check what it should do. But from that on i am  

I would be grateful for any hints if i am trying something evil or for  
possible workarounds.
