A second tarball is up.  More changes, such as using the real AC_PROG_CXX
but not caching the result, and doing the testsuite properly.  The files
are in the same place:

Fewer useless files in this tarball, so you should unpack this in an
otherwise unmodified tree.

Right now I'm seeing 5 FAILS in the localization section, but nothing else.
I think I have all the locales installed...


If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater
than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace.  We seek
not your counsel, nor your arms.  Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you;
and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.            - Samuel Adams
