[tex-k] Issue with original cweb sources and TL's cweb

Dear all,

In README of cweb sources your address is specified.

Expanded 'ctangle.c' somehow doesn't match its origin 'ctangle.w'.

Steps to reproduce:

    rm -fr /tmp/cweb/
    mkdir /tmp/cweb/
    cd /tmp/cweb/
    wget ftp://ftp.cs.stanford.edu/pub/cweb/cweb.tar.gz
    tar -zxf cweb.tar.gz
    cp ctangle.c ../ctangle.c-orig
    touch *.c
    ./ctangle ctangle.w
    diff ../ctangle.c-orig ctangle.c

What is curious: if we use TeX Live 'ctangle', 'ctangle.c' matches its
origin 'ctangle.w':

    /usr/bin/ctangle ctangle.w
    diff ../ctangle.c-orig ctangle.c

>From the above we can conclude that:

1) cweb.tar.gz is inconsistent
2) TL's ctangle has incompatible behavior
