typically current is only available in source form. there are binary
snapshots made by people every now and then and published in various
places, but not with any programmed regularity.

that looks like a 1.5H set which is, indeed, older than the 1.5
release, but it's from the current branch (trunk, actually), so it's
better to start from.
as for more recent snapshots, i've got a few that you can get to at
which are (a) for i386 only and (b) don't include source. you can
easily get the source, though, by checking out a tree from the anoncvs
server with the same date as the snapshot.
