Well, turns out the binaries will not identify as anything - nor 
actually _do_ anything at all, for not really well-explained reasons. 
Which is a bit disappointing on a couple of levels.

The binaries in the following installer should be a bit better-behaved, 
obediently identifying as "v3.8.0-beta.667" - otherwise same deal:
