Those versions are supposed to be 'universal' not link to a specific
distribution. They aim to provides TeXmacs for distributions which don't
have it and also to give opportunity to have a newer version without
recompiling. Else this versions could have some side effects like Fran├žois
noticed it.

I didn't fully test but I would say 'old' is before kernel 2.6. We
targeted distributions that are 10 years old.
