Ah-hah!  Thanks for the nudge: because there was no reference to the HTTP download locations at the "Build and Install Yourself" [1] page, it never occurred to me to look in the release notes for such.  With your confirmation that there were HTTP download locations, I ended up finding them.  It may be useful to include a reference to those locations, but I'll find an email address for the website to send that recommendation.
