./configure && make && su -c "make install"

You may choose to live that way... I do not.

The single biggest reason why I use Red Hat Linux, RHEL, and Fedora is that I trusted RH to provide me with timely and well-built packages such that I would never have to rebuild vanilla code again. I now trust RH to spend the time, money, and effort in creating a community-based system to make sure the same happens for Fedora.

If it were all "configure, make, make install" I would not be using Linux at all. I do finance and real estate... someone else builds operating systems and packages. No reason we should duplicate each other's work.
