  And how is this any different than when it's requested to post
configurations here, unaltered, for help in debugging?  (sorry, "security
through obscurity" is a hot button topic for me, one that I don't believe
in).

  I found the exact opposite.  Using the tarballs to install has been by far
easier on me than expecting the various package managmenet tools to work
correctly (I've been burned by apt-get, yum and emerge too many times to
even bother with them any more).
