I've revived the automatic repackaging which broke back at the 2014h
release, nearly three years ago.  It originally broke then because the
new trend to turn what used to be distinct canonical zones into links
brought the count of canonical zones down enough to trip a sanity
check that I'd put into the automatic process.  I didn't fix it at
the time because I had a poor mental state and, with this module only
in use for experimental purposes, there didn't seem to be the need.
(I would certainly have fixed it promptly if we'd switched DT:TZ over to
use it, as we've previously discussed.)  The automation rotted further,
with changes to the copyright notices, an awkward new make rule, and
UTF-8 in one of the files in the Olson distro.  That's all fixed now,
and I expect to keep the automation up to date from here.
