Good, have the ability of build the source (like ports) is great. Because,
many apps have the options to enable or disable in the compile such as
Gnome apps. For example, if I want AbiWord to compile with Gnome support.
If someone don't even want to have AbiWord with the Gnome support. I don't
know how it works with Debian, I only use it for like a week long time
