Repoint zulu's approx at mirrors.mit.edu and/or punt approx

We should repoint zulu's approx at mirrors.mit.edu.

Additionally, now that mirrors.mit.edu exists, it has been asserted that zulu's network link to mirrors is actually faster than zulu's approx cache (a vmware virtual disk), so maybe we should consider punting approx entirely.

Approx does buy us the ability to quickly repoint every chroot at a new mirror. So perhaps we should keep it. OTOH, now that we have dkms, a mirror being out of sync for a few days is not a blocker. I think I don't really care about the end state as long as its consistent across chroots.
