Although we published the sources to ChangeFSI, it won't currently build due to a library which is currently not present in the BBE. There are a couple of other components in the Batch Two release which are known to not build - these will also not be found in the pre-built binary archives.

Clearly, getting more libraries into the BBE is one of the things we're working on, as well as getting the sources to those libraries out, too, so less and less of the BBE will be supplied as a binary and more and more will be supplied in source form so you can build your own build environment (if you follow me).

We have to balance decisions like the above against the desire to get sources out there. For example, some components in Batch Two which are known not to build simply aren't a priority for us but you're more than welcome to fix them yourselves and feed the fixes back.
