Either way, I'd advise Mr. Will to perhaps try daily builds on CDRW until it works right. Frankly, it's a crappy solution but it's probably the quickest one there is.
Where exactly are the dailies ? All I could find are infrequent builds, and it appears that the last one was on Nov. 18, probably RC2.
