Hello, thanks for your response,

all right, that is what I picked up from the porter's handbook, but I must have
overlooked the note (if there is anything like that) regarding the sufficient first 7

I tried this earlier (yes, and I do also a make makesum ;-))), but I get a complete
different "structure" right now - no tarball which contains exactly OpenCL 2.1 or OpenCL
2.2 (the one I'd like to download), but a complete hierarchie of the CL sources, starting
from OpenCL 1.0 to OpenCL 2.2. Either, there has been a change in the way OpenCL headers
are provided, or there is a magic trick to download, depending on the GH_TAGNAME, a
tarball ending in "*_GH0.tar.xz"
