Hi Staszek, I'm very grateful that you provided binaries last year
which work on my old machine.  It would be great if you can provide
binaries for old machines this year too.  Run ./Build --without-xetex
on your old machine and xetex can be compiled on a newer machine.  On
old machines xetex will not run anyway, but all the other programs

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
