If the first wget attempt fails partway through, subsequent invocations of the script in the same directory will rename the downloaded file with a numerical suffix. The script will keep trying to unpack the first incomplete tarball.

Adding -nc to wget will prevent this problem from occurring. Adding -c will resume downloading the partial file. There is no harm in including these switches in the first invocation of wget.

For emacs 26.3, needed ./configure --with-gif=no as well. Thanks for the script!

@mcraveiro thanks for the tips, but my install on centos 7 failed at make:

./temacs --batch  --load loadup bootstrap
./temacs: error while loading shared libraries: libtinfow.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

ideas/suggestions?
