Okay i reverted all the changes and started from scratch using the guide
and it appears to have worked, so i must have done something during the
last run that deviated from the instructions. I found the errors i got
earlier and i'll check through them first to see what i did wrong. Still, i
tried it several ways and took two days of exploring. I still don't
understand why yum only installs version 0.6.5 and not the latest version.

also regarding the static binary builds, how are you supposed to install
those? I assumed you just cp the executables into /usr/bin, is that not how
they work?
