With that fix the buildbot is happy now about the new download script:

Good point. And when it has been converted so that all these scripts are 
run via "$PERL" then I think we should drop their exec-flags and 
eventually also their shebang lines.
   ls -l main/solenv/bin/*pl
shows that the exec-bits were handled inconsistently and the scripts 
using them tended to be wrong by ignoring --with-perl-home.

This is an interesting experiment. Running
   find . -name "*.p[lm]" -exec grep -l bin/perl {} \;
gives a first indication that there will be quite many areas where to 
expect problems that cannot be easily found by the experiment 
such as the platform or language specific or scripts.
