If you build any software from source and install it outside packaging
system, then, yes, you loose packaging advantages.
You'll get harder times to upgrade it and/or deploy it.

That said, I agree any serious admin should learn how to package
software for his platform. And it's definitely doable on Debian :)

This gives you the opportunity to enhance package to make it suits
*your* needs. for exemple, integrating fixes which are not yet released
(TS-1821 for Linux native AIO, just as an example :) ), and/or enable
experimental modules.

That said, I guess I'm one of them, running Debian Wheezy :)
