Asterisk install method "yum install" or manual configuration

I was wondering what I really will be missing if I simply use "yum install -y asterisk" to install asterisk.... Vs... the manual - unpacking, configure, make menu select, make, make install...

I have tried it both ways, and so far the yum method just seems to be smoother and Asterisk works pretty solid when it is done.  I know I can add more selections with the menu, using the manual method, but what I am really going to be missing?  Extra music on hold packages?  Can I add the missing stuff on later?

the manual method allows you to configure extra options and to compile additional modules.  the only way to add the features to the yum version is if you compile the rpm's yourself.

if you just want the vanilla install you should be fine with yum.
