This is like a recipe on cooking rabbit stew that says "first, catch a
 rabbit. Then cook it perfectly."

It leaves out a lot of details, such as the various libraries and
dependencies to *build* the tarball.

And these are only available if you built them by hand, *on that
host*, with the same environment, and haven't run into a single
library that needs an upgrade or that isn't available for your
distribution. The current example of this is "gnutls", which which is
needed for full domain controller support and requres a versoin more
recent than that on any default RHEL or CentOS system.

Unless a component requirement has updated. See above mentioned
requirements for a newer version of gnutls.
