Done and appears to be correct in the repository.

Please rebuild configure, somebody. Pretty please?

I did manage to build a working version by hacking the configure and makefile directly. Which is awful, appalling, dangerous, risky, unwise, unpleasant, wrong, foolish and probably unlawful. But it worked.

Next question - does anyone have objections to adding the ScratchPlugin and UnicodePlugin to the general builds for x86 (and whatever other) builds? I’d suggest external plugins to make it easier to leave them out of any distributions.
