Or just ping me in #ghettoforge on Freenode and I'll generally get it
fixed quickly, if I haven't already seen it on the list and fixed it.

There are downsides to compiling yourself.  If you do so then you have
to monitor new releases and bugfixes and push out updates.  If you use
packages in a yum repo, even a 3rd-party one like GhettoForge, then
someone else does that for you and all you have to do is run, "yum
update" on a regular basis.
