[OS X TeX] Binary for detex (convert latex into plain text, see also l2a)

does anybody know where to find binaries for  detex or knows how to 
compile it. I get errors when I try to 'make' it.

The more modern alternative l2a compiles fine on my system but is a bit 
limited (no /include).

Or is there a better way to get plain text out of latex? Exporting text 
from the pdf file using Acrobat works, but all non-ASCII characters 
(incl. the pervasive ligatures) and the hyphenation make a big mess of 
the text.
