For starters, a whole lot of paths are wrong (they are missing the
common/ subdir prefix). Hmm, maybe serious overhaul is an
overstatement, but getting the right paths is a must, and made me
doubt the overall quality of the file, perhaps indicative of neglect.

Where is this pruned linux-source tar.gz? Our repository seems to have
the SuperCollider-3.4-Source-With-Extras-linux.tar.gz file from
sourceforge with md5sum 20631117a7e9fb1c862833ce424ce9f4. Should we be
using the without extras variant? Or maybe even another tarball?
