If you ask me: use Fedora RPMs (Core, Extras, livna, etc.) wherever you

In most cases the RPM's are built with reasonable settings, but sometimes one wants something non-standard. In that case, download the source RPM, which contains the original sources used to create the binary RPM, tweak it to your desired settings, and rebuild. http://www.rpm.org/ for more info.
