Hold on, the 2.6 release tar files should already contain those files
IIRC ? Or is that error occurring during some later processing ?

No idea, sorry, does something break if you don't have them (apart from
the error above that is).

That could be done with what you have indeed !

Also, were you able to run the tests ?

I don't expect them all to pass, but it would be good to have some
feedback at that point (note that the last time I heard about them,
nothing blocking a release was identified, just bit rot in the tests
