I don't remember, if I ever knew, exactly what SourceForge permission
flags are involved with posting a file to the File Releases page, but
I think most or all developers have them. (And if anyone finds that he
doesn't have them, it should be easy to convince me to change that.)
Thus, if you put the binary on the net someplace, and send sbcl-devel
email with URL and checksum, then any of a number of us -- maybe even
me, on a good day -- could put it on the File Releases page for you.
I think it's generally agreed that it's good to have at least one
not-too-stale binary for almost any given architecture, so that
cross-compiling isn't needed. (Just because many of us, esp. CSR, have
worked to make cross-compiling clean and routine doesn't mean that we
actually think it's good for everyone to do cross-compiles.:-) Ergo,
even if there's no developer sufficiently motivated to build it, it's
still fairly likely that there will be one or more motivated to post it.
