it seems to work but "Make install" typically don#t remove orphaned 
files no longer needed while packages contain clean lists and just stop 
to build if the definitions are not clean or "make install" to the 
virtual root within the buildprocess creats unexpected files/diretories

the package manager is your strongest tool on a linux system - use it
