I suppose it is due to how the scripts work that produce the compiler release. I guess these can be found online somewhere; Martin Nowak has been taking care of the releases for many years.

I agree that it would look better to “clean this up”, but knowing that it is just cosmetics most people have more pressing tasks at hand… It looks like it would be easy enough for anyone to fix, though :-)
