How is compiling your own more indicative of upgraditis than waiting
for someone else to compile a package from the very same source
code? Users of a non-corporate Linux system are by necessity system
administrators. Being able to compile a program is a basic skill for
using Linux. Yes, you can get by without it, but you do pay a price
in being dependent on others to provide what you want.
