I'll beg to disagree here. This way lies madness with complex
software. I don't have the *time* to hand-compile and hand-tune every
single package myself. And I say this as a guy who does it
professionally, publishing backport tools for Samba 4.1.11 to RHEL: 6,
over at https://github.com/nkadel/samba4repo and
https://github.com/nkadel/samba4repo. and as the first publisher of
ports to SunOS way, way back in the day.

I can expect RHEL to do that for me in new OS releases, it's part of
what I pay money for, and sharing the expertise in a bundled set for
others is part of what I appreciate from the open source and freeware
