AFAIK it's recompiled at least once an hour, when changes made to the
source code in the repository warrant it.

Just download the current build. You can see what rev it's up to from
the entries under "Recent SVN Activity" further down the page: as I
write this, the latest entry there is still r12243. However, as
Richard says, later builds (ie ones with higher 'r' numbers) will
still contain the same changes unless one of the developers
specifically undoes them again for some reason.
And the last sentence confirms the problem. There is no means of
actually downloading any specific revision number and instructions to do
so are plain misleading. Or do I have this wrong?
