This is the only thing I changed.  Everything else is as before, i.e. the 
officially registered 
http://isabelle.in.tum.de/components/ProofGeneral-4.1.tar.gz that was also 
shipped with Isabelle2012.

Any updates need to materialize as a new component, with a new name.

See again 

The "isabelle build_dialog" wrapper was done in a way to make it 
reasonably easy to include it in "isabelle emacs", for example. 
Otherwise, I could have made it internal to the Prover IDE.

I did not pursue this further, because I also have the impression that 
Proof General users like to do old-style tinkering.  The "installation" 
part of the website will somehow mention "isabelle build -s -b HOLCF" as 
example to do it independently of any front-end.
