That depends on the developer's intention when releasing source

developers' own use, and the source code only released as a

LADSPA and LV2 plugins I use most fall into this category.
If a piece of free software isn't available as a distro package,
I think it's very much up to the user to find out how to compile
it if the developer doesn't have time to offer unpaid support.
