Sorry, at the moment I don't know how to fix this. The tarball is  
created on demand by the ViewVC utility (which also  provides the web  
interface to the source repository), and it seems to lose the  
executable flags on the scripts such as configure, etc. You can fix  
them with chmod +x before building; e.g., see the build-xetex script,  
which executes

   find . -name configure -exec chmod +x {} \;

just in case it's being run in a source tree that came from such a  

Note that if you use a Subversion client to check-out and maintain a  
working copy of the code, the permissions are correctly retained;  
it's only if you get a standalone tarball that this problem happens.

I should really follow up with the ViewVC developers, as this is  
pretty annoying; I just haven't had time to look into it.
