Can it be your system is equipped with Debian for architecture i386 ?
I forgot to mention that my system is amd64.

Probably my error. I forgot the many architectures supported by Debian.
I should have advertised building from source.

So please download:

  http://scdbackup.webframe.org/make_isombr_part.c

MD5: 85e89cec6173e889693e8466d7cad763

If you do not have program /usr/bin/cc yet, then install package
"build-essential", which provides the equipment for the C language.

To build your own binary, do in the directory where you have the
file  make_isombr_part.c :

  cc -g -Wall -o make_isombr_part make_isombr_part.c

This command should end quickly without any messages.
If messages appear, then please show them.
If all is well, a new file
  make_isombr_part
is supposed to have emerged and to have rx-permissions at least
for its owner. That's your executable binary.

Sorry for the inconvenience.


Have a nice day :)
