[Slackbuilds-users] racket slackbuild update

The racket version used by the slackbuild [1] is outdated (6.4). Since
July, the 6.6 version is available.

My other problem is, that the slackbuild script byte-compiles the
components written in racket during the package building. This
approach has no real benefit over using the "unix source + built
packages" distribution [2] provided by the racket project, but makes
the compilation time longer, especially on weaker systems.

[2] https://mirror.racket-lang.org/installers/6.6/racket-6.6-src-builtp

Therefore I propose the changes attached in the patch file.
