FWIW, as I tested only the binary tar.gz distribution I just grabbed the 
src dist and build from scratch (again all done under Linux). No 
problems with the build as such at all. Yes, there are some niggling 
bits like testcases fail when built in a headless environment and the 
overall testcase build warns at the end because the hyphenation files 
are not by default present. But that has always been the case.

Unless the problems observed by the Maestro and Joerg are actually new 
and not present in the previous distributions I am still happy to 
recommend to proceed with the release. In the end most users who rely 
on distributions will just use the binary distro and that seems to work 

And yes, it would be really nice to have it all perfectly clean and all 
examples to build with a minimum of info/warn/error logs. But who is 
going to do it?
