Hi Sebastian - thanks for the report.

    However, https://tug.org/tex/unixtex.ftp yields 404.

It is supposed to be ftp://tug.org/tex/unixtex.ftp, aka
https://tug.org/unixtex.ftp. I got too aggressive with global https
changes :).

    A bit web searching yielded the strong suspection that unixtex.ftp is
    something (very) old and so extinct that there are only kind of fossils
    remaining on the net.

The ftp url has always worked. Admittedly there is little purpose to it
any more, but not a big deal to keep 

    Apart from that: The following paragraph in the Kpathsea manual contains
    "and.or" instead of "and/or".

Thanks. I fixed that and made a couple other tiny updates.  --best, karl.
