The ./first-setup.sh download will FAIL on CentOS 5 and other older linux installations
dating from the last century as follows: 

sent 19 bytes  received 47 bytes  132.00 bytes/sec
total size is 3525  speedup is 53.41
receiving incremental file list

sent 17954 bytes  received 6826826 bytes  1955651.43 bytes/sec
total size is 9533569  speedup is 1.39
texlua: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.7' not found (required by texlua)

Please note that the 32bit luatex binaries have been compiled on Debian/oldstable
for some time and this has not appeared to have caused any problems.
