[GRASSLIST:1679] GRASS binaries: why not?

Hi List,

    Just a simple question: Why the GRASS release candidates
(in this case: GRASS 5.0.3) are not distributed like binaries.
    In my opinion binaries would be more easy for newbies to test/install
and return bugs.
    I already compiled GRASS, but this may exclude many people that
could help testing the release candidates (and maybe the unstable versions).
    Please, I don't wanna make anybody angry, it's just my opinion.
