I downloaded that tar.gz directly with wget from the url you gave me,
but diff seems to claim it is bit for bit identical with the tar.gz
file I get from apt-get source. This is intentional isn't it?
I think the problem is that the tarball on mentors is from June and
is quite large. The new one that I have created (once from the orig
tarball received with apt-get and once with wget) is much smaller.
Not sure about how to get rid of that old tarball on mentors however.
