      Additionally, a git clone of the source tree:

        will include a signed 1.9.10 tag which points to a commit named:

        which can be verified with:
        git verify-tag 1.9.10

        and can be checked out with a command such as:
        git checkout -b build 1.9.10

    rectangles when performing non-antialiased rendering.  Also to the relief
