Every nightly buildbot bootstraps now and every *nix buildbot among them
builds successfully. I consider the patch a complete success.

The snapshot buildbots still can't bootstrap unless they have
LWP::Protocol::https installed - not until we make another snapshot for
them with r1753943 merged.

It's just Windows we have to fix now. See the other thread.
