That's what I've been working on all day.  I think I should be able to
get the bzip2 stuff done pretty quickly.

In totally related other news: I need to rewrite large parts of the
entire release stuff since the way we do stuff now is rather tricky and
cumbersome.  I want as much as any other guy to get the snapshots
working again, but right now any path I choose (remove one big driver,
temporarily disable floppy builds, and so on) will have its impact one
way or the other, i.e. it is a hack.

I am trying to see which I can do most quickly in the least time...
