Oh, I think we are getting away.
I don't need a compiled release. Instead I compile it myself and
provide the binaries for free.
The simulator is end of life. I just use the machine to compile tcl
If I find problems I try to fix it or ask for advice. At least 8.6
is still in beta. And, yes I have to patch 8.5 still today for
the IRIX mkstemp() problem.
Let's stop here.
