You don't *have* to build it. It's just very simple if you wish to do so either to apply your own patches or enable different build options. Keep in mind that simplicity is a relative term--I, for example, don't find Windows Vista simple at all, but rather needlessly layered and complicated. I find OpenBSD, and all of the BSDs for that matter, to be very consistent and concise without a lot of hand-holding or cruft. They let me do what *I* need to do and stay the heck out of my way the rest of the time, something that OS X thankfully inherited from its BSD roots as well. Wish I could say the same for most of the so-called "simple" Linux distros out there today, so far Slackware and Arch are the only ones I've found that stay out of the way.
