The easiest thing is that you roll your own ganglia-3.1.3rc1.tar.gz  
package and put it in
/home/src. This will be tried first on downloading. You can also  
subscribe to SVN which
is described in (4) at
but "gmake garchive" will not upload the revision, so you may not  
always get what you expect.
That's way I recommend rolling up your dist. Couldn't you just
   gmake tardist
or something from the checked out thing? Then just copy over to /home/ 

Best regards
