We are facing exactly the same problem. Everyone in our project needs
up to date binaries but they can't all build them, currently they are
checked into CVS. Our plan is to create a script which copies these
binaries into either a file share or a WebDAV share and another script
which copied them back out again so the builder of these things can
update the shared copy and the users can get them back into the right place.

Another possibility is to use rsync to put/get the unversioned binaries.

We will also have a versioned release tree containing binaries which
have been released into the wild.
