do what you believe and let us look where you end in 5-6 years
after doing a couple of updates with "./configure && make && make install)

it IS DIRTY because it does NOT remove obsoleted files
and yes i have seen environemnets where as example mysql did not
compile any longer as long all pieces of the old version were not
deleted manually

working on a modern OS beside the apckage-managment is just silly
you have no clear dependencies, you have no migration-path, you
have no clean rollback - you are doing a dirty job working so

but yes, you can, do if you think it is good enough for you
for the majority of advanced users it is not and in a prodessional
environment it is simply unacceptable
