the binaries are built/packaged for redhat. Because of bugs in glibc 2.0.x,
it will crash sometimes, but you can run it. I get it to run by downloading
the sources (~25M), and building them (takes about 200M(?), ./configure &&
make). This is simple, it just takes lots of bandwidth and disk-space.

is there still a testsuite coming with M16 ?
