I don't know where you are looking, but the script is there.

Making assumptions about what is and isn't present is not helpful.

There are a couple of files missing when compared to svn but:
a) the missing build files are for an optional module not included in
the distributed binary
b) they have been missing in previous releases
c) no user has ever complained about them being missing.

None of the missing files *need* to be in the src archive but I do think
that they should be. Given the circumstances, I see no issue with fixing
this for the next release rather than re-rolling this release.
