Again, many thanks for your efforts! Some troubles subsist though:

 - it looks like you now use a Perl script instead of a shell one, but
   you didn't rename it in src/GNUmakefile.in. See the second attached
   patch for an easy fix.

That was a mistake - the old Perl version was still hanging around, but the shell script version wasn't making it into the distribution tarball for some reason. That's fixed now.

When building, a lot of warnings is(are?) displayed, complaining about
``dereferencing type-punned pointer will break strict-aliasing rules''
(I'm using gcc 4.1.2). That's not a problem to me, but I prefer telling
you that now so it won't become a major problem afterwards,
surprisingly, if the compiler behaviour is modified. (gcc is being more
and more restrictive and strict.)

Honestly, I have no idea what that warning means - I'll have to look into it.

Cool. I've rolled those fixes in. If we get anything more sorted out, I'll release 1.3.2.
