If you wanna play safe, use the pre-built mdk rpms for your mdk distro. That way you will not get into dependency trouble or dirty your system. If you dont get rpm packages, you will get hold of the source (source tarballs) and compile them. Just make sure you have all the required packages before starting to compile.
Also remember that you might have to --force install a package if some dependency was installed from source and the rpm database doesnt have that info.
