it's less work building from a VCS than from a tarball

tarball:

  1. find the website
  2. find download link
  3. download the tarball
  4. navigate to the tarball (using a GUI file browser)
  5. extract the tarball (using a GUI extractor)
  6. navigate to the extracted directory (using the shell)
  7. and finally... $  ./configure && make && sudo make install

VCS:

  1. find the website
  2. find clone link
  3. clone the repository
  4. navigate to the cloned directory (using the shell)
  5. and finally... $  ./configure && make && sudo make install

So, that's 2 extra steps for going the tarball way.
