I really don't like the inclusion of "usr/local/" in the path
within the tarball.  If someone unpacks this elsewhere than
at /, it's going to get two useless and empty levels of hierarchy.

Also, and more important, the 'binary' tarballs have *always*
contained the source tree from which the binary was built.  Unless
I'm missing something, the source *isn't* included in yours.
'Binary' tarballs have really been "source-plus" rather than
"binary-minimum."

Other than that, it looks like a clean solution (though I
haven't tried it).

We need to get buy-in from everyone who's going to be providing
a binary that they'll use the same method, whether it's this
new APACI script or the old binbuild one.
