We don't sponsor binary packages built by someone else. Autobuilders are
supposed to mass-build every package and upload it as long as it builds
Otherwise if links can be built without need of any changes, tell me and
I'll build and upload it manualy.
If it required porting work, please send the patch here. You can also
forward the patch to the BTS or the upstream developers if you like.
