This is not the only reason. As many of you know I have been a fairly vocol 
opponent of including external libraries into FreeSWITCH (and other projects) 
for a while. In the end most users will simply use the rpms provided on the 
website or by their distro so providing packages and helping out distro 
packagers is a much better use of time in my opinion.
