I spent bit of time in #icculus on freenode, and TTimo popped in.  Then
I started bitching about build systems and offended him, not realizing
he was the one to put together the release :O ... oops.

Anyway he noted that the -a option will autoconvert line endings when
extracting from a zip.

Also its been noted many times now that gcc3 seems to work, but you
need to manually edit a few lines to remove the -Werror CFLAG.

Dunno if the permissions bothered anyone else, but +x on source files
made me cringe. So I wrote a quick script that recursively changes all
files from the current directory, to permissions 700 if a directory, or
600 if a regular file:


Unfortunately its not very smart.  It doesn't know that some things
should STAY executable, so (for example) code/unix/cons gets its
execute bit stripped.
