the install yes

longtime maintainment for sure no, because the next "make install" won't 
remove orphaned files after major upgrades, a package will

i was there with mysql for years and randomly other software linking 
against it's libraries stopped to build until i manually deleted every 
mysql related file and built it again

never saw such issue on package-only systems and since i have here 30 
machines running Fedora 25 hich where installed in 2008 with Fedora 9 i 
have some expierience with long-time maintainance of a server system
