Annoying of them to provide only binaries, and mroe so to label their
Linux/x86 binaries only as Redhat 6 or RedHat 7.1.  If you're not
running Red Hat, that doesn't tell you a damn thing about which one you
need, or even whether either of them will work on your distribution and
release, never mind whether the processor optimization is correct ....
and that's without even getting into all the platforms they don't have a
compiled client for.

I'll see if I can get source out of them and compile sanely-optimized
clients for our machines.
