Certainly some of these are in no need of a rebuild.  TimGMSoundFont, for
instance, is a cross-platform binary file -- just packaged in a folder
(with a link from big_synth.sy) for convenience.

As far as I know, I still need OpenSound on that old laptop of yours,

an older version, but I'll experiment.
