I don't know about the RPM packaging rules, but you can build from 
source just fine as long as you don't try to regenerate any of the 
autoconf/automake stuff. The lack of complaints since it started being 
packaged this way indicate it's not been an issue for the users.

I've always used whatever is current without any problems, though the 
docs say to use 7.3 (which, iirc, was about to be released when this was 
all written). I'm not experienced enough with this stuff to comment on 
whether it's good or bad practice though; I'll have to leave you and 
Peter to fight that one out. It can be a pita sometimes though, and it 
would be nice to have something more self contained.

Regards, Dave.
