[Bf-committers] move prebuilt libs from svn to git?

I've been kind of wondering if they would eventually be migrated too. I only update my local libs occasionally, so it has a tenancy to fail if doing a large update spanning many revisions. Plus the benefit of not having to use two different tools.

Now with Git LFS being more widespread, it should mitigate the issue with all the large binary libraries.
