Indeed, and I never said it had (except as an example of a situation
where you have multiple clients with different release schedules).

As I said, I don't have a build environment, don't have all the
necessary dependencies, don't want to spend time figuring this out etc
... I'm looking for a binary distribution which I can just drop in my
home directory and that will just work. But nobody seems to distribute
all-static binaries for Solaris ... it's not the unix way, I guess.
Anyway, this is probably digressing too much into a discussion of
platforms and OS'es, things that we have no control over anyway ...
