Hi Manfred, Gerben, all,

I guess I should have mentioned that the current sources are in
source.development.  Olaf made some fixes last night in the course of
updating mips-irix, so the last change which needs to be included at
this point is #7721 on 2005/08/13 13:07:22.  Gerben, sorry, I don't know
what time zone that is or how to translate into yours.

Anyway, besides p4, the sources can be retrieved by rsync:
  rsync -a --exclude Images \
    tug.org::tldevsrc/Build/source.development/TeX/texk/web2c .
Or http:
  wget -np --mirror \

(There have been a few more changes since 7721, which will neither harm
nor help a build.)

Meanwhile, I noticed that i386-linux and alpha-linux have two
executables which are not in the new mips-irix set: utf8mex and ttf2tex.

For ttf2tex, it seems this is something that just got thrown in "by
hand" last year.  I'll see if I can get the package in the tree
properly, if it's still relevant.

For utf8mex, I realize I am not exactly sure what creates symlinks to
pdfetex.  Will have to look that up, unless someone else can point me ...

FYI, Fabrice told me that he hopes to update the Windows binaries at the
end of August.
