Ah, but then you easily see the merits of doing planned builds of binary
packages!  ;-)

(I personally always want to build everything from source, so I always
roll my own binary packages, but I'm sure many folks would be well
enough with just "official" binary packages, particularly if they were
signed and assured to be of high integrity.)

I never install any additional build tools on any of the systems where I
don't do software development (eg. production mail servers, whatever).
