Normally, you always need the previous official release to compile the
next one, so for 1.0.4 that would be 1.0.2. However, it may work with
1.0.0 too, I don't know. But I don't think the precompiled binaries are
much (if any) bigger than the sources, if that's what you're worried
about. You don't have to download the big zipfile again, if you just want
to update your compiler/rtl, you have enough with the basego32.zip file.
