The script cannot cope with the renamed tarball contents.  Fixing this
will take some efforts, but more importantly it bloats the script as
stable does not use this new naming scheme (yet).  I hope we can soon
do the GDK-2 feature release, such that I can actually skip supporting
both ways of doing things in the script.

This is already added, as well as the geom module.  It's probably not on
the live website, but since it won't work that doesn't matter anyway.
