Sorry about the late answer - just checked if all installers contain the 
file. The Windows, OSX and Solaris packages have it, and due to an 
oversight it is missing in all 3.2.8 Linux packages (will be rectified 
with 3.2.10 of course). As a workaround you could build it yourself, the 
sources are included in the SDK package.
