I don't know how you came to that conclusion, but I build the source
distribution packages and I am unable to create those .obj files. Thus it
would be impossible for me to include them.

And if you look again, you should see that the source package contains ALL
source code files. These *obj files just have an 'r' appending to the right of
the name without extension, thus 'getpassr.obj' is built from getpass.c.

A: they don't.

Sorry, but I can't answer to that. It is a MSVC-specific detail beyond my
limited knowledge.
