I'm sorry - when I was updating the binaries (still missing for
mac-ppc and linux-64), there were no binaries from Akira available
yet, and I forgot to update a few days later.

This (new luatex) should be fixed now (but I still need to figure out
what goes wrong with the installation scripts on windows).

you can also use rsync -av contextgarden.net/minimals/pragma/mswin/
