Unfortunatelly it has changed. I can supply Windows executable.

I am thinking of users who already have some version from TL in texmf-dist
and want to install a new version from CVS which has traditionally
different directory structure. Simple unpacking to texmf-local might
eventually cause problems, e.g. updmap will complain that there are two
files dvng.map. The installation script should replace the existing
installation in texmf-dist or, if it does not exist, put it to
texmf-local. The locations will be found by kpsewhich. Of course, for TL
I'll just prepare the package to be unpacked to texmf-dist.

I don't know, it even isn't in teTeX.

I will do it within a few hours.
