True. The recipe is currently not working (of course I did an apt-get
update and upgrade before):

Doesn't work for me:

kai at NC10:/.../$ make -C freedom-maker raspberry-image

Cleaning up.

When I try to wget the archives, no problem. :-/

For the moment I would download them all by hand, but that's not the way
it should be working...

I'm a bit out of ideas. Do you have one?
