Download: Blender Bundle
This is a rough build (no packages) of Blender 2.4.8a. Furthermore, it may only run on Intel Core2Duo systems, since I used -march=core2 and -mtune=core2 when building with gcc. This build was done without OpenAL; if you need this, let me know. All "make install"s for dependencies install in /usr/local, with the exception of blender itself, which does not appear to have a make install; instead, copy the directory to the desired location and create a script like the following to run Blender (say, at /usr/local/blender):
You will also need to have libstdc++.so (64bit) on your system; see the post below on building gcc if you need this. If you use this or have any suggestions, please let me know.
