Yes, incidentally, my intention was to run this under qemu, anyway.

Yesterday, a friend of mine found the second one while sanity checking 
that the original really was unavailable.  Notably, it was created three 
days ago, probably due to the original being unavailable.  I was 
reticent to just replace the original one for various reasons, but after 
asking this, I changed line 15 in 
~/openwrt/target/linux/arm64/image/boot-wrapper/Makefile from:




I did a build and it succeeded.  I don't know if the original is gone 
for good or if this is the official new home for this repository, but 
would it be worth patching that Makefile to use the (currently) working 

My problem's solved locally, but I don't know how big of an issue this 
is for others.

Thanks for the reply,
