Note that the files tripping up some virus scareware are not the main executables under the bin directory, but the launchers in the main directory that detect if you are in a 32-bit or 64-bit environment and than launch the appropriate executable (in some cases with additional arguments). The executables are only 15 KiB each (excluding icons in arx.exe and arx-portable.exe) so anyone who cares should be able to disassemble them and verify what they are doing.

The source code for them is here:

It's compiled using MinGW, e.g. for arxunpak.exe:

 $ i686-w64-mingw32-windres bin/x86/arxunpak.exe -O coff -o resources.obj
 $ i686-w64-mingw32-gcc launcher.c -o arxunpak.exe -static-libgcc -s -Os -fdata-sections -ffunction-sections -flto -fno-asynchronous-unwind-tables -fno-ident -fno-stack-protector -fno-unwind-tables -fomit-frame-pointer -fuse-linker-plugin -fvisibility=hidden -fwhole-program -Wl,--gc-sections -Wl,--build-id=none -DUNICODE -D_UNICODE -DLAUNCHER_USE_PATH=1 -DLAUNCHER_USE_CMD_PATH=1 -DLAUNCHER_COMMAND=arxunpak.exe -DLAUNCHER_SCOMMAND=arxunpak -DLAUNCHER_WAIT=1 resources.obj
