I could add that the advantage of compiling instead of just
downloading and adding binaries is that you can tweak your compilation
to suit exactly the kind of processor you have (or other needs),
resulting in a much more optimized code (in order to run in all
platforms, binary code is inherently compiled for old CPU models). The
drawback, of course, is increased installation time.
