Default cufflinks - building form source vs precompiled


I've been trying all day to build cufflinks from source and to be honest, its driving me nuts - the boost-libraries never seem to do what I want. I've now reached a point where I'd rather just let it be and use the precompiled binaries on the website. Since I'm working on 64-bit-system, there do not seem to be any obvious problems.
I have tried the test data and it worked fine so far.

However, I quite shake a nagging feeling - could the precompiled binaries cause problems later on since they are not properly adjusted to my system? Is there disadvantage to using them? Does anyone have any experiences with this?

Thank you for your answers .

I have not had problems using the precompiled binaries on RedHat 64-bit.

Precompiled executables have worked great for us on Linux 64-bit Debian 5 machines.

Apparently, BOOST 1.48.0 (the current version) has a bug--- I had a similar problem (going mad trying to install source), and solved my problem with using a slightly older version.

Yes, Installing with Boost 1.47 works on CentOS or OSX
