I thought the 3.4.1 branch would be appropriate.  Move the category-b
tarballs to Apache Extras, and make the build fetch from there instead
of from SVN.  That way the trunk's copy of these dependencies doesn't
disappear yet.  Then when we release 3.4.1, we have a release that is
not dependent on the SVN copies, and we can safely remove them then.

The problem we have now is that even though we branched after the 3.4
release, the build script is still fetching from the trunk copy of the
dependencies.  So we need to fix this is a somewhat backwards way.

Or am I missing something?
