Sure, I'll have a look at that.

The script needs to be somewhere outside the DPDK repo, browser 
accessible (or wget, etc), so
the website archive seemed the most sensible place for it.

So the idea was that the user gets the script, then when it's run, it 
downloads DPDK,
installs package dependencies, builds DPDK, builds testpmd, binds to 
NICs, and runs testpmd.
