Executable Permissions on Shell Scripts

When makeself is updated, performed the following commands after the update commit. This will ensure executable only from this location. While it might not provide any benefit, it doesn't hurt.

    git update-index --chmod=+x
    git update-index --chmod=+x
    git commit -m "Force makeself to be executable"

To check the files are of right permissions

    stat -c "%a %n" *

*** Note: *** It seems no matter the change wants to stay 644. Regardless, with all other protections this is handled on *nix now and line endings are addressed.
