I told him that if his distro does not do it's homework, he needs to compile 
himself. The URL is in my signature and in contrary to many autoconf based 
sources, my software compiles out if the box by just calling "make".

As mentioned before: I deliver something that compiles and runs out of the box 
on aprox. 30 OS platforms (not counting the CPU and OS-version variants).
It is not my duty to deliver binary packages for more than 100 OS/CPU variants.
