I understand but in my case I choose another method.
If I can't create  PDF X/1-a I can't do production work. The 
lack is a deal-breaker. Thus far 1.5.0 has been a usable 
product for me.  In fact instead of updating it nightly I may 
go to a weekly update, and save the current working version 
so that if by chance the newest version is not usable I will 
have a fall-back. 

I compiled my first program late in life, in 1968. So 
compilation does not terrify me. I use a script....

I have done my share of compiles and link edits in my day but none recently.
Hell, I can't even find the location of 1.5svn. I can't ask John how to do
it because he works in a Unix environment. Can someone direct me to 1.5svn
and instructions for compiling it in Windows?
