However, many of my users who use PPS or other ref-clocks run Windows, 
and they do not have either the required tools or skills to recompile. 
The compiler alone is a 1 GB download.

These days a slightly larger executable including the ref-clocks is a 
very small inconvenience compared to having to rebuild.  Another issue 
is the time taken to rebuild - you are looking at nearly an hour on the 
Raspberry Pi, for example.
