V5 adds the source code for PRIMOS 19.2, and the diagnostics programs,
to that image.

V4 corrected ACL problems in the Rev19 and Rev24 images.

V3 removed additional junk, and rebuilt the disk images as 600 MB
drives, split 30/10 heads filesystem/paging. It also included
enhancements to the wrapper scripts: directory independence and the
ability to run the runem script from a terminal.

We learned that the C compiler isn't quite right in at least Rev. 23 of
the samples (and presumably the public emulators, since the samples are
derived from them), so there'll be a v6 coming sometime soon.
