Thanks, Peter, and Prof. Ripley.
My efforts last night was mostly futile except that it told me about the
embedded newline in Built field.
Prof. Ripley: how do I get your fixes? Can I just download

The problem is in .install_package_description: the Built: field must
be split across lines. (The newline does not have to added after ;, so
your fix is not 100% adequate.)
I've fixed .install_package_description.
