Only if you download the source (which is usually what you get if you go directly to the home page of a project, but that's not the usual way most folks install software)

From the "Linux" version here

"The programmers' version does not contain any binaries, but the sources can be used to compile a Linux version. The sources can also be used to compile a version for most variations of the Unix operating system as well. Users have reported successful compilations on FreeBSD, Solaris, IRIX, Digital Unix (OSF/1), AIX, SCO and HP-UX"

    Yeah, but what I was saying is you don't have to get it from there. You can probably get it from the same place you get the rest of your Linux distro, or from rpmfind or someplace like that. I can't be more specific without knowing which Linux distribution you're using.
