This is good news for me. As there was no complaints on the list, and other
people (yourself) seem to be providing patches, I (wrongly) concluded that
my build process must be broken for the "cinstall" section.

Anyway, my "build version" always downloads a file and says its 4 bytes
short.  Its been broken for a while..... possibly a couple of months.  In
fact, I am curious as to why your only seeing it now?

Are you going to chase the problem?   If not, I will look at it later....
( My wife has a list of jobs for me to do this weekend :(  )
