What is your reason to build from source rather than use our RPMs?
(Building from source is no problem if you prefer.  I am merely asking.)

This is the version we currently use, yes.  However, please don't forget
that we also apply the Owl patch on top of this.

This suggests that you did not apply the Owl patch (from our native
tree).  Please do.  This is mentioned in the instructions on the wiki.

Also, please start with our dot-config-* (the appropriate one) and make
your desired config changes relative to that (keeping most other
settings intact).  (Maybe this is what you were doing already.  I just
thought I'd remind.)
