Compiling everything myself?

Hi list

This may be a basic question, but a question non the less.

I have been using Debian for some years and have gotten tired by system freezes, having a slow system, and having a package system that requires that I install every skin of KDE to get KDE up and running.

I hope FreeBSD will be better! :-)

What I want to know is the following: Do I get the option of fetching sources and running through a guided compilation; or do I get binaries (like Debian) only?

Thanks in advanced.
