I'd say that is rather strange when it comes to Windows and Mac. The flac pages at Sourceforge always had links to binaries. For Linux, many will compile from source. I never compile anything, be it Linux or Windows. I know a few that compile on Linux of course, but none on Windows or Mac. Source code is still quite esoteric for many.

I hope this can be arranged. John Edwards has posted on this early in June. I use the Windows binaries from rarewares.org.
