Creating binary files by hand will likely cost more in labor than investing
capital in a tool. Your call, though.

I suspect there are some free creation tools out there, possibly on Linux,
but don't have all the combos wired. I did a Google search on "swf
authoring linux" yesterday afternoon and turned up some hits for another
list, so this might be fruitful here too.
