I'm vaguely under the impression that the last FWTools for linux
predated the work on the direct tile generation api.  A test at your
end could likely verify that.

I'm not currently producing FWTools for Linux due to some damage to
my Linux FWTools build environment which would likely take a number of
hours to resolve.  It is rather unlikely producing new releases will be
a priority for me before October.
