            2019/bin/amd64-freebsd has biber, getnonfreefonts, ketcindy,
            while 2020/bin/amd64-freebsd130 lacks those three, but has

in the growing Web site at


The table of `missing' executables is generated automatically by a
script that compares contents of the *.tar.xz files in the bin

I suppose that I could add a filter to remove biber, getnonfreefonts,
and ketcindy from the reports, though I'm disinclined to, because that
would be a lie.  I have a long-standing beef against both Apple macOS
and Microsoft Windows because their so-called file directory viewers
hide certain files, and unless reconfigured, drop file extensions too.

For now, I'm going to concentrate on getting more TeX Live 2020 builds
done.  The above Web site has no external links to it, and thus is
unlikely to be found by search engines.  It will become more
noticeable in a month or two when I change the link from texlive-utah
to point to it.
