Oops, now I see where you are.  The script you are referencing is only 
an example.  Each section (proto, libs, utils, fonts, drivers) has it's 
own instructions to download all of the packages using the wget files, 
however, the section page only provides generic instructions to install 
each of the 200+ packages one by one (as many people use package 
management).  On each sectional page, there is a wiki link that contains 
the commands necessary to build the entire section with a for in do loop.
