I noticed that I didn't clean up as well as I could have :-(

Files created by running ./configure ended up in the repository and a
number of files that shouldn't had their execute bits set.

I have addressed that and *force* pushed a cleaned up repository.

If you cloned the previous repository and did not edit anything, just
remove your checkout and clone again.

If you have local changes, use git diff and/or git format-patch to
(re)apply your changes to a new clone.  Once you have confirmed that
your changes are properly applied to the new clone you can remove the
old one.

Sorry about any inconvenience caused.
