And I would say that starting from the tarball and rebuilding a source 
snapshot or from svn has given me no trouble on Debian or Slackware, 
while saves me being stuck several years behind reality. However FPC and 
Lazarus are about the only things I install this way, /particularly/ for 
system libraries I rely as much as possible on the distro.
