Fwiw, sshfs (on some unices) provides an secure alternative, very easy to set
up, but unfortunately slower.


PS: anyway, I think the best advice given here is to install somewhere with all
the architectures needed, then just zip (or tar or whatever) the installation on
the server, make the zip available, and have the clients unzip it. This way,
clients download only what they need. And they obviously get all the very same
