Well, thanks, I have my own - but for those who might be interested in
fetching a copy, it might really help them to know which platform your
binaries are for. :-)
This goes as good advice to anyone making binaries (for whatever
reason) available on the net.

Well, the short answer is that once it's out, it's out, no matter
which crypt you are using. But if you are linking against a shared
libcrypt that the machine owner must provide from whatever sources are
appropriate to them, then there should be no trouble.
