In my opinion building for source is the most useful when building a
system with specific requirements or constraints (e.g. embedded system
or old PC with limited memory and processing power). It is also a great
learning process.

One thing it won't do is make sure the application doesn't install in
directories that are forbidden by FHS/LSB. It also won't make sure the
application uses system libraries instead of compiling their own versions.
And these are only examples.
