Installing and setting up squirrelmail is so simple, why would you use
the rpm anyway since there is actually nothing to compile?

Using the tar.gz package and putting a link from squirrelmail-version
to a directory possibly named webmail or squirrelmail makes it easy to
switch versions just by changing the soft link.  That way you can test
new versions of squirrelmail by untaring the package, deleting the old
link and linking the new source directory.
