I update my 1.5.x svn version nightly. But I save
copies of the latest version once a
week and once a month. That way I can back up to
one of two saved version if as sometimes happens
the latest svn blows up. I was unsuccessful in
compiling a specific version of 1.5.0, but if
1.5.0 is to be released I can download that from
the website and presume that it is reasonably

If you use linux I can send you a copy of my
latest successful version. It is 1.5.1 but it
works for me.
