In other words, https://github.com/Clozure/ccl/archive/v1.12-dev.0.tar.gz downloads as the file ccl-1.12-dev.0.tar.gz, and that file unpacks into a directory named "ccl-1.12-dev.0"

First, orry to join in so late.
Wouldn't it be much easier to create a sepatate git repository that only
contains the bootstraping binary/image? This repository can then be
added to CCL's git repository as a submodule. Getting the correct
binary would just be a 'git submodule init && git submodule update'. 
One big benefit of that approach: asubmodules keep track of commit, so
each commit in CCL's repository does point to the matching version in
the binray repository.
