comment Installing two things at the same time on Linux
Also keep in mind your package manager will not be aware of anything you build separately so will not be able to use it as a dependency... Unless you build a package instead of make install-ing - checkinstall can make this easy in many cases: asic-linux.com.mx/~izto/checkinstall

comment Why does the “password” prompt take forever when I SSH into my Ubuntu 9.05 server?
@Arjan Hrm, good point... I usually 'ssh user@host' so the password prompt took a while anyway. Is requesting the username part of an ssh auth session or is it something the client must know before attempting the connection? Observing the behaviour of the ssh client I suspect the latter. I'll do a little reading and update...

I had this reverse DNS lookup issue slow down my ssh connections in couple of installations... If you find this is the case comment out the line "UseDNS yes" in /etc/ssh/sshd_config and restart sshd.
