Both the Fedora and Rocky rpm's contained a syslinux-6.04-pre1.tar.xz at 5283272 bytes. The tar.gz's from various syslinux development sites all weigh in at 10533974 where re-compressing with xz -e9 only shaved a megabyte.

What's the problem here?

Are you not familiar with how debian packages are built?

Source for *all* released versions of all packages are available in the debian archives.
The procedure to build from source is quite strightforward and easy to follow, and it
is standard for all packages.

What exactly does not work?
