It may be a little hard to do the selective replace - some manual
pages have changed and so has the website.  My guess is that building
from scratch is easier.

Good point, thanks.  I'll diff the expanded trees of 1.5.3-1 and 1.5.4
and post the results so everybody can have a look.

In a sense 1.5.3-1 is the beta of 1.5.4 the way I proposed it.  If we
build 1.5.4beta and do another distribution for 1.5.4 final, we'd face
the same packaging issues IMHO.
