@ wchouser3 & szboardstretcher:

You're right - weirdo with time and a pc on hands. It's a TEENAGER. That's the particular form of that diseased mindset. But, as Dorothy Fuldheim put it:

The "We can compile from source we are superior" kind of attitude that some people have - personal experiences.

Hmm, for a decade or two I've seen new forms of that disease: many people grow up to 30 or 40 in all other respects except socially/psychologically they stay around 15 years old. ("You can do anything, just don't get caught", 30-year-old skateboarders, ...).

I'm not sure why people thing compiling from source makes them superior. Make me a source package with clear instructions on how to install, and a list of the dependencies (why isn't that obvious?) that would be superior. The people that think they're so hot are using Gentoo, and Arch. I use both of those, and they do the compiling automatically. What's so superior about that?

I gain small, and sometimes substantial, performance increases with my custom compiled software such as ImageMagick. This is true with kernel compilation on some of my specialty computers as well.
