Hello Eric and all,
First, I went through the couple old 1.1 packages that were not on the update
repo. They were buried elsewhere on ibiblio.
So, at present these will be included on big USB but are not currently
installed under ALL or BASE.
DOSUTIL, also updated to latest version.
SYSLINUX, 4.x, there is a 6.x version available if someone wants to build it,
probably should add this to ALL.
FDSHIELD, updated to latest version.
CALLVER, probably should add this to base.
UPX had not gone away, it was it the DEVEL group. I just missed seeing it when
compiling the list.
And, CURL is now back. It’s sources were located. I also updated it. Hopefully,
it is not broken.
WATTCP is the only one remaining.
I have spent many many many hours fixing broken and incorrect packages. At
least for now and the foreseeable future, I think I am done fixing them. I will
be more than happy to include the remainder once they are fixed.

Yes, however some are elsewhere on ibiblio.

For now, included. I will try it out prior to next release.

Probably, someone should really update it.
