Yes, it is harder to build it from source than to have a whiz-bang installer do it for you. That is not a shortcoming. It's pretty obtuse to state this as a flaw. As with most (all?) open source software for Linux, it will be in the repositories of your favorite distro soon. And you can keep using the version you have now and pay exactly the same price to update to it.
