Ok, I am now kicking myself very hard: despite that fact that my build
script unpacks that file, and tells me that it managed to install
texmf succesfully, I somehow managed to not even /download/ that
tarball. And yet it *is* listed in the wget file... ah, well, time to
go download 90 MB...
Thanks for the help (and wakeup call) :-)
