Make that +2.

My primary development machine is my macbook pro, and I'd definitely
suggest compiling from source. It's quite painless, and it ensures
that you have exactly what you think you have on the machine. Getting
it to start up automatically is pretty trivial, and I'd say that the
benefits *far* outweigh the avoidance of a few annoying system
administration tasks at install time. Saving myself pain over time is
definitely far better than saving a bit of discomfort once, IMO!
