Description

For distribution ease and for newbie bringup time, allow ON_CLOSED_BINS to point to a directory with:

on-closed-bins-nd.i386.tar.bz2
on-closed-bins.i386.tar.bz2

Because one of the closed binary binaries is permission 0400, a distro cannot pre-populate closed/ without writing a file that's root-read-only.

This fix allows distros to ship the tarballs and use their parent directory as ON_CLOSED_BINS.
