I regret having to tell you this, but as I reported in PR
lib/6470 the snapshot I produced the other day had potentially
severe bugs in it, causing among other things perror(3) to take
segmentation faults.  To this day I do not know what the root

dependency.  Even though the build tools in the snapshot still
appeared to work, I decided to push out a rebuilt snapshot where
the problem documented in the PR above can no longer be

The revised snapshot is available as

(note the "a" at the end of the date) and the sources this
snapshot was built from is available in
