There is one small difference to running it this way rather than as a
system service - it will be running in an unconfined/unrestricted state,
so some things that may have otherwise failed due to a lack of
permission, will succeed. So if you've changed anything related to what
external programs are called, or what files/devices are accessed, it's
usually a good idea to make a final test with a proper install (I tend
to do that by running "make rpm" followed by an install of the rpms -
there are yet other problems that don't show up if you simply run "make
install"...)
