May I ask where the need is coming from?
After all, these binaries are at least seven years old and:

- Linux binaries only work with 2.079.0 or higher on modern 
machines which require PIC binaries
- OSX binaries only work with with 2.088 or higher due to ABI 
changes on >= 10.15
- The install script only supports CygWin for two releases and 
even here you'll likely to have problems with older versions as 
they aren't code-signed

Anyhow, as the fix is easy, I opened a PR and uploaded signatures 
until 2.060.


The bigger issue is that even newer binaries (e.g. 2.088) have 
been signed with a GPG key that has since been expired and we 
should resign all archives. So when this resign script is been 
setup, we can also sign the older archives.
