That's all the power of packaging method like RPM, 
separating products (exec, requisite and installation) 
and how to build it ;)

FYI, the source are never included in binary RPMS and
I never install them in my RPMs (jakarta, xml, httpd).
The Source RPM (.SRPM) contains the released source(s),
patches if needed, and init&config files. And of course
show how to build the binary package :)
