It is not hard to do.  In fact it is what I do (ie not use the RPM version) this is because I have the same list name in different domains.

Unpack and run something like:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mailman/example.org --with-var-prefix=/var/spool/mailman/example.org --with-cgi-gid=apache --with-mailhost=lists.example.org --with-urlhost=lists.example.org

I will shortly try to install MM3 on CentOS 7 ... the biggest issue looks to be that it does not have a version of python that is new enough - so the first thing to fix.
