I suspect that the people using RH do not generally compile stuff (like
myself).  I only compile
when I HAVE TO.  Otherwise I make do with the RPM system.

When installing the Logical Volume Manager, I found RPMs for the LVM
/sbin files, and even for the kernel patch (I ended up patching the
2.4.3 kernel for a later LVM beta.).  So the only thing I had to compile
was the kernel itself.
