In your context (want 3.2 features) you probably want to build based on 
the 3.2 tag, that way you are working off a known quantity. I'd suggest 
strongly that as part of your build you document the source base and 
which patches/changes you have applied. Having this information will be 
critical for you (or someone using your build) in case bugs have to be 
filed, or further changes/patches have to be applied, etc...
