Sick of compiling istatd on every server that I want to be monitored, I finally got around to create a Debian package. Hopefully I did everything by the books, liscensing wise. Check the file attachments to download.
Here's iStatd compiled on Solaris 10 x86 for those lazy not to compile it. Also make sure you have libxml2_devel installed. See the attachment.
(I take no credit for the development of iStatd, rather presented is a binary package of it)
