With this I agree entirely. My policy is "NO THIRD PARTY LIBRARIES".
I'm quite happy to build and install them for my own use
but I can't figure a way to simultaneously redistribute them,
whilst at the same time not having to be responsible for
maintaining them (quite apart from licencing issues).

Guess I'd be happy to use 3PL's when the packaging/retrieval
mechanism (such as GODI) was itself part of the standard distro.
