Users don't build software from source. If you are building software
yourself, then you are a developer. And you shouldn't really have a
problem to compile these libraries then. If you have questions, you are
of course free to ask them and we will try to help. But please don't ask
us to simplify the build process in such awkward ways. The source tree
is not aimed at users. Users should use whatever their distro offers.
