I'm just talking here, but if "by source" mean you have some reason to compile it yourself. I.e. you have a reason to change the defaults. Then I would start with a homebrew recipe and customize that.

This is what I did when I wanted to version os Emacs that supported full screen in lion. I have a custom homebrew recipe.
