[tex-live] linux 2.4 binaries

Michel Goossens at CERN kindly provided access to an old GNU/Linux
machine running a 2.4 kernel to produce the i386-linux binaries that
were in TL 2007.  CERN's security people are now planning to upgrade
that machine, so it won't be available for the next TL release.

So, does anyone else have a 2.4 machine available to do this?  The
easiest way is if I am able to log in and do the builds myself, but
having binaries supplied is doable too.  Obviously it doesn't matter
right now, but I'm trying to avoid surprises at the end.

Unless such a machine materializes, we will be forced to move on to
Linux 2.6 in 2008 :).
