Hello Manuel,

thanks a lot for your feedback. Apparently I have given green light
for building the binaries on the wrong machine (not compatible with
sligthly older linux).

Sorry Luigi, I had to do
   svn merge -r 370:369 .
   svn merge -r 368:366 .

Karl just gave us access to the same machine that is used to compile
TeX Live binaries (debian sarge), but due to lack of rsync and svn I
had troubles trying it out and then ran out of time.

Arthur - do you have some time to try to make the compilation work
there? (We probably need external call of rsync and svn, so the script
probably needs to be adapted a tiny bit.)
