I haven't compiled packs for any of the fighters, but now that you mention it, there's no longer any reason not to.
Back when I first did this around four years ago, my main motivation and the vast majority of the work was ripping the resources from the PC-98 games. There were no tools to do any such thing automatically, and not even any documentation on most of the file formats used, so I had to solve all sorts of puzzles and work out everything from scratch. After going through that, using the Touhou Toolkit to rip the Windows sprites and then consolidating them into nice archives was mostly an afterthought, done for the sake of completeness.
At the time, I wasn't aware of any tools that could do something similar for all the fighters. I did look into doing the ones not supported by extractor tools by hand, but after getting burnt out working on the PC-98 games, I decided against it. And so rather than just have some of the fighters missing, I decided to draw the line at "only ZUN's games", and just not deal with any of them.
But checking today, it seems the Touhou Super Extractor now supports ripping sprites from all the fighters, and outputting them directly to PNGs, so there's absolutely no excuse not to do them. Look forward to that some time, probably not too soon.
While I'm at it, I might go back and improve some aspects of the existing Windows packs as well.
