Good catch! adj-matrix-graph2.gif, subgraph.gif, and
undir-adj-matrix-graph2.gif are checked in a regular rather than binary


tools/build/c++boost.gif and tools/build/v2/c++boost.gif shouldn't be there
at all (but should be binary if they were there).


libs/thread/build/threads.mcp and libs/thread/test/test.mcp almost
certainly should be binary.


While I hope these get fixed, I don't see them as showstoppers.

The other differences are because of very late commits. Come on guys, we
need to finish this release and move on!

In the real releases, the .gz and bz2 distributions have cr-nl changed to
just nl. That seems to keep everyone happy. I only generated the .zip (with
the cr-nl's still in place) for the release candidate, but didn't do the
two other distribution files because of bandwidth constraints.
