It is available on CD-ROM; various posts (generally on current-users)
have talked about where. I didn't save them because I have no need for
a CD-ROM version, but I'm sure they're in the mailing list archives.
You can also get it by anonymous ftp.

I'm not sure what the problem is. If you're trying to get a binary
distribution, suitable for a first installation, this is hardly
surprising. If you want a source distribution, I believe there is an
unpacked source tree, which is no more "binary" than any source files,
and also .tar (or .tar.gz, I forget) files with large pieces of the
source in them, which like any other .tar or .tar.gz files are of
course binary files.
