I wasn't really worrying about the "automagical tools" folks, just a
check for those, like me, that build stuff manually, only to have the
script fail due to a missing tarball.  I've added a note in the README
to provide a reminder, but who reads those?

So the question is,

(1) do we want to enforce the use of the newer static libusb and thus
have the script fail if libusb source is missing or should the script
continue on the assumption that libusb is not needed?

(2) have users upgrade the libusb in 14.1, i.e, libusb-1.0.19-sbo as a
qemu dependency? Are there 14.1 packages dependent on libusb that
upgrading could break?

In the long run, #2 might be better...depending on when -current goes
- -stable. Leaving the SBo script as vanilla as possible will make the
SBo transition easier when we all upgrade.
