Nearly all the binaries were compiled on the ConTeXt build farm:

Notable exceptions include:
- universal-darwin compiled, signed, annotated by Dick
- amd64-netbsd compiled by Marc (we will try to get that one working
on the build farm in the future)
- x86_64-linux was built manually on CentOS 7 (because Debian 9 was
apparently too new; we could automate this in the future)
- (i386-linux was supposed to be built somewhere else; I created a VM
with CentOS 7, only to figure out that the same build tools that are
available on 64-bit version are missing there; I ran out of time to do
it in time for the freeze)

Missing platforms:
- i386-netbsd: compilation failed and there was no time to fix it in
time before TL freeze
- cygwin: Ken just managed to compile it after applying some (pretty
simple) patches

I'm co-guilty, so I'm willing to try to support the packagers to do
the right thing (and hopefully improve the overal situation by TL
"Autofoo gurus" willing to help with proper incorporation of the
sources would be greatly appreciated ;)
I started looking into proper integration, but I didn't take enough
time (yet) to finish the work.
