the pdf differs from the sources. the pdf is an exact copy of the
published book as printed with the ISBN. there have been patches
applied to the sources which people have submitted so the sources
differ marginally, thus it is not possible to recreate the pdf
unless you go into the archive and fetch the unpatched sources.
