Because it wouldn't make sense for someone to try to spend the time
to maintain them.  Between all the OS'es we support and the minor
variations of same, we'd end up trying to keep 100's of files
up-to-date and would be forever behind the 8-ball.

One way out of this would be for someone running each flavor of OS
to maintain an OS-dependent site with downloadable precompiled
packages.  We could have an SuSE site, a RedHat site, a Mandrake
site, a Solaris site, etc.  If people were to volunteer to do this
and to keep them up-to-date with OS versions and Xastir versions, we
could link them into a Wiki page that would point people there.
