      it is because a package is more than simple files

      only on debian because the are flicking on old versions instead making
      updates, if i make a newer version as in the distribution is newer
      some weeks later their package will be installed and that is why
      you should EVER make clean packages instead having old postfix from
      the distri because dependencies and install another one somewhere
      in the filesystem

      if you make your own packages you have to make security ipdates
      on your own usually, the reason for apckage-managment is not only
      for this, without ANY problem you can rebuild postfix 2.8.2
      for Fedora 13 and update the RPM over the 2.7.2 in a clean way
      and so the migration question does not exist
