There weren't any scripts before, I just ran through the instructions in
an .org file. Surprised it too me so long to get irritated with this.

But, as it's a new release, I have also change the packaging somewhat,
both from Emacs-25, and also from Emacs-26.0.90. The "default" one
(i.e. one with the shortest name) now contains all the dependencies;
that is, you don't have to unzip the deps file over the top of an
installation for yourself. The "-no-deps" version is the same as the
Emacs-25 releases.
