The 2.2 package builds the extensions without any problems, at least on
my system.

The daily snapshot of the extensions (for use with pre-2.2 versions,
which didn't come with the extensions) no longer (as far as I can tell)
contain the setup files, probably because they've been rolled into the
package setup files for 2.2. I was just suggesting that rather than
maintain two seperate setup environments (one for standalone, one for
the package) it may have been more convenient to leave an older version
of the extensions (before the setup was moved into the package) on the
FTP for pre-2.2 users. Of course, if the setup files could make their
way back into the snapshots, that would probably be better.
