Stephan will know better than I, but presumably there are two options.
(i) Someone who has one of these things is able to compile the source
and produce the binaries. It would take a bit to get the build
environment set up properly, but once that's done, I don't think it's
that hard. (ii) It becomes possible to cross-compile for M1 on, say,
Linux. At the moment, that does not seem to be possible, and maybe there
are reasons it will never be. Apple does not seem terribly supportive of
that kind of effort.
