The people who run Sumex-aim anticipated that people might not already have
something to unpack a binhex file.  Binhex 4.0 is available in MACBINARY
format rather than binhex, so that you can download that and use it for
unpacking everything else.  It is located in Mac-info/utils and is named
binhex4.bin.  Be sure you download it in MacBinary format rather than
binary or text.
