Oh, but that's exactly the version I'm going to use. I'm just going to
check out that release tag from the Git instead.

See, that's what I originally intended to do. I just missed a critical
step: I never checked out the tag, so I ended up accidentially compiling
and installing something I didn't intend to. Because it worked anyway, I
just never realised it, until now.
