Hello David,

Thanks for your feedback, and sorry for my incomplete patch.

My reasoning for keeping the third-party libraries in the tarball was
simply because upstream made that choice.  Unbundling can and probably
will introduce differences in the behavior of the output with other
distributions and their official binaries.

I will try to unbundle these libraries from the release tarball.  This
could take some time though.

Again, sorry for the noise.

Kind regards,
Roel Janssen
