Nice to hear you got it working, though you seem to have gone
the long way round.  Contributions to making it easier are of
course welcome, but I don't see anything here that we can use.

As a general rule, you should build from source if you're happy
to do that.  Otherwise, you install a package from your operating
system (or distro, in the case of Linux).  Choice is good!

Yep.  Are you developing a module?  Or are you on the team for
one of the scripting languages?

Your account seems to boil down to a call for better packaging,
and we could use some expertise in that area.  But most end-users
who don't want to concern themselves with that will use their
distro's packages, so (arguably) that's what really matters.
