Take a look here:

I made these tarballs early last week. Once I get some feedback on
this (whether it works for anyone else, since it works for me on
linux 2.4 i386, linux 2.4 amd64 (opteron), and Mac OS X 10.3
(Panther)) I'll encorporate any new changes and cut another tarball.
Your feedback would be greatly appreciated. :)
