I think developers in general mean building the source into a binary
Besides Idwer's DOS-binary [ flashrom.exe ,
http://khepri.coresystems.de/~idwer/flashrom/latest/ ] I'm not aware of
any binaries/packages with very recent versions of Flashrom program.
The PartedMagic LiveCD (downloadable as ISO from
http://partedmagic.com/doku.php ) seems to use flashrom revision 1323
(while yours is 1028).
General issue is that developers like people to report with very recent
versions instead of outdated bundled versions, due to improvements made
Your options are 1 or more of below:
* find a new flashrom binary
* find a new flashrom binary package (.deb/.rpm? my Linux knowledge is
near non-existing) for your distro
* download a tar-file or so, followed by compiling
* check out the source (CVS, SVN, GIT, no idea) followed by compiling
(preferred by developers).
Ofcourse if flashrom developers have snapshots for download or complete
binary packages in their own repository it might make life a lot easier.
For now I suggest the PartedMagic liveCD (which isn't very VMware
friendly unfortunately, but that's offtopic).
