There are still little things popping up, people are on holiday etc, new
platforms being added. Will take some time :-)

No, but you can generate it yourself. Snapshots are deliberately not
smartlinked, because then they would be much larger.

Try to build a release yourself. It isn't that hard.

assuming ppc386(.exe depending on platform) is in the path, then:

make all install 

in the fpc/ dir will pretty much do the job.

If I have time I'll update the make cycle faq on how to build using the
newer (much better) makefiles.
