I'd forgotten how much work making binary releases was.

chandler suggested that we release binaries for as many platforms as possible for this month's sbcl release — particularly since last month's release didn't happen. So, log in remotely to five different hosts, start screen (after compiling it, in one case), run a compile (which in practice can take overnight on old and cranky hardware), swear at sourceforge's compile farm which has decided not to allow logins this morning, make binary distribution tarballs, take md5sums, scp all over the place, bzip2 (oh, yes, not all hosts have md5sum or bzip2 installed), sign md5 document, ftp to sourceforge, fight with the sourceforge web interface of death (you are in a maze of twisty web pages, all alike).

Still. Mostly done now. If your platform doesn't have a binary here, and you expected there to be one, shout. Or preferably build one yourself.
