I prefer to build JtR from source and have never had an issue doing that.
I use Debian (Stable, Testing and Sid) as well as OpenBSD -release. I have
to add GNU make on OpenBSD to build JtR but that's not an issue and I
prefer to build from source as many times, the pre-built packages are
older or do not have OpenMP, etc. I can link executables myself to
/usr/local/bin or whatever and that works just fine.

The lack of 'install' does not bother me. Just my 2 cents.
