Thanks for the improved script, the suggestion and the testing.

Attached updated patch. changes are:
- moved to ./script/build-older-versions
- trimmed whitespace from patches
- used your version of the script
- added permissive license to the script
- added a short blurb at the end of the script, showing PATHs.

Comments welcomed,
