Well, as a matter of fact, it was Eray that was arrogant in the first 
place. Let's quote his mail:

And that was in response to "I will not provide any form of support 
whatsoever for these packages." which is just a statement of fact and 
nothing else.

Additionally, these build are really nothing you _ever_ want to 
install. If you need an optimized version, pull the source packages, 
change the debian/rules file, add the appropriate compiler switches 
and compile them yourself. That way you'll get a _much_ cleaner 
installation that makes much more sense, is integrated with debian 
packaging, etc., etc. AND you can actually optimize for Athlon, i686 
or whatever CPU you really have and don't rely on Eray's choice of K6 
- - which certainly isn't the perfect choice if you have an Athlon or 
any other recent CPU.

Still, Daniel - you've been insulting. Too insulting. Cool down.
