Hi Karl,

this is now available as
and has become quite lenthy because the complete original source trees of
zlib-1.2.3, libpng-1.2.34, and vlna are included.

The top-level contains a README explaining everything (I hope).

I'd appreciate any comments.

At the moment my idea is, that most libraries built from the TL tree are are
always static (certainly all those that can be expected to be present on
every reasonably modern system).  For those maintained independently, my
preference is to keep the original source tree unmodified and use a proxy
Makefile.am to buid them.  That should make it much easier to upgrade to
newer versions (as is done for zlib).
