The shell script doesn't work very well in non-GNU environments like
darwin. This provides an implementation that uses just a single GNU tool
- gawk, thus reduces number of points of failure.

(cherry picked from commit d9fb53d)
The biber package is now at 2.14, but TextBibTeX is still required.

Few changes were needed for newly introduced scripts-extra path. This
broke some of our old tricks which were relying on having writable
script directories. The changes to the script locations made buildEnv
create symlinks to the script directories instead of directories of
symlinks to scripts. The changes to and texlive/TeXLive
perl path were made because of this.

(cherry picked from commit 9c4212c)
Announced in [1], versioned tarballs allow to make sure that a
specific version is fetched. This does not guarantee that all previous
versions are retained on the main mirrors.

Logically, we would want to first try to download versioned tarballs
from any mirror and only then try the unversioned ones. But right now
we only have two mirrors and only some of the tarballs are versioned
in texlive-2019, so the order is changed to not hammer the weak mirror.
