Thanks. Well, I dislike Python and did not want to introduce yet another 
scripting language.

That is possibly now by just changing the data file. I provided the 
script.  We all can provide the data.

There are other things to do, not necessary but nice to have:

- Fill in the missing original download sites.

- Solve the issues with mismatching MD5 sums.

- (mentioned above) Guard more libraries with the same flags that 
control in their makefiles whether they are build.

For me that is a question of convenience.  Moving them (not just copying 
them) to another site would mean that a simple SVN checkout would not 
put these tarballs on your local disk.
