Main: build + self test: OK

xz + wget: builds OK.

/// asy

Builds OK.

Testing asy complains about by Ghostscript version and stops at that
point. The tests before that point seen OK. Debians wheezy and jessie
have 9.05, 9.06 respectively. Asy demands 9.14. This requirement is met
with stretch and sid, but these aren't available for RPi yet.

What GS features does the test script use that are in 9.14 and not on

I hacked the GS test to always return true, and the tests stop after
that point. All the script does is check a GS feature and then stop

I checked the test script and it just does the tests in sequence and
then runs off the end of them. No fanfare of "All PASSED" :-(.

So apart from that niggle with the GS version, asy passes.
