The source is not publicly available. Since this is generally a science
experiment, they want to maintain control on how the data is processed.
However, their unix client page has the following statement on it:
If you would like a version of SETI@home for platforms other than those
listed here, or if you could compile SETI@home for such a platform,
please mail us.
and provides a link for mailing to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Last week, I made couple requests for this myself. The problem is, there
really isn't an easy way to contact the Seti@Home crew. I've sent mail to
the three addresses I was able to find on their web pages:
email@example.com <Dr David Anderson, Project Director>
firstname.lastname@example.org <Dan Werthimer, Chief Scientist>
as well as utilizing the Problem Report form at the bottom of their
"Problems and Help" page:
But since there's not and address for a webmaster or someone responsible
for maintaining the pages, I suspect it may take some time before they get
around to making any changes.
