You probably grind your own flour to make your own sourdough bread and
slaughter your own cows for beef. Oh, and you patch KDE under FreeBSD every
night before brushing your teeth and going to bed.

Try to open your eyes and realize that not all users are made in your image.
There is a time and place for every method of installing and using a program
whether it's an automatically installed binary package, a source package
recompilation, a checkinstall/xstow run, or a raw compilation from source.
Your harping about how great it is to compile everything under the Sun on
Slackware is not productive in all but few corner cases. Lighten up please.
