I would guess that most people using GNU/Linux build it for themselves. It
most a guess of adding a couple of packages, and then typing "make" in the
source tree. It runs in place, so you don't have to "re-install". I use
this technique so that I can switch between versions (i.e. either the
release branch or master if there isn't one).

For ubuntu there is a PPA
(https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-elisp/+archive/ubuntu/ppa), and for other
distributions there may be similar things for other distributions.
