Yes, as explained in  extra 
libraries (LibWWW + Mesa + Redland + wxWidgets + freetype) are not included 
in that tarball.

The last version is distributed with 2.6.2 and includes some MacOS X and 
Windows patches.

We need time to test them on several platforms and to update our release 
process according to these changes.

Perhaps you ignore that the libww could be compiled with or without WebDAV 
option. Amaya must be compiled with the same options as libwww, because 
libwww internal structures and returned values differ with these options.
This is a general problem with the libwww use, and that explains why we prefer 
to generate our libwww version instead of using a pre-installed version.
Other changes seem okay, provided we can force local libraries on MacOS X and 
Windows, as they include specific important patches.

My plan is to generate a snapshot as soon as the release process is updated.
