Thanks for the tip and the pre-built binaries.
However, the version is sid is a beta release (I think 8u40 will not be released
before spring) so I would prefer a more stable version.
Btw, I don't understand why sid has a so "cutting edge" version.
As I understand the purpose for the different Debian repositories, this would better fit
in the experimental repo.
