Note that my calling sup "broken" isn't any sort of official
statement from TNF, considering I don't represent them.

That said, your message:

came after Manuel Boyer's message:

stating that sup is broken in that it doesn't distribute .o files
(his exact words: "I'll try to get this corrected"). Manuel's words
may be taken with a bit more force than mine.

Note also that not very many people seem to be having this problem
(though, it's probably open to question how many non-developers
are even capable of building at the moment, considering how bogged, which just about everybody persists in using,
has been).
