Hi Andy,

	If you are trying to learn how to compile major things yes this is a 
great way to go, download the source and build it from scratch. If you 
are more interested in just getting software to fly quick, then the 
srpm's are the way to go for this.

	I guess as a last resort you can resort to using the binaries that I 
have built via the XFce provided srpms.
