There is still a binaries directory on the ASF mirror system, however there is nothing but obsolete versions in it.

I think it should be removed entirely.

Likewise the 'Binaries' link on the downloads page.

Instead there should be a paragraph explaining that users need to build the software for themselves.

It could point to the platform landing page: https://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/platform/
