*Sigh*, this seemingly was disk trouble again (write errors happening
under heavy load; limiting to ATA33 fixed that, I'm beginning to
wonder whether the I/O adapter card on which the ATA connectors are
placed in the Blade 100 is electrically unable to handle faster

The build should hopefully be unaffected by this, judging by the
logs, but I have regenerated the tarballs and ISO images (which
I have also verified this time).

I'm going to start a new upload.
