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.
