It turned out that it was not as bad as I thought it was.  I updated the
script to cope with current nightlies.  Unfortunately the script has not
been updated on the live website yet, so I put a working version here:


However, we just fixed a bug in the tarball generation that prevented
compiling from the nightlies.  So in any case you'll have to wait till
tomorrow's nightlies are built.

The new script includes an --enable-geom switch to optionally build the
geom extension for MonetDB/SQL.
