Well I have heard of instances where if you compile a prog from source under 
RH, and you attempt to update the system with something like up2date, rpm will 
complain that it can't find certain dependencies such as Libstdc++. This is 
because rpm drops it in a nonstandard location, which is different from where 
it would be placed after a make install for example. This is basically what I 
meant by overprotection. However, dpkg tends to put things in places such 
as /usr/sbin, which is a standard location for the most part. I know ssh 
installs itself there. One remedy for this I think is for people to just edit 
the install command in the toplevel Makefile, however I know some people might 
be leary about doing this.
