Upgrading OS Components: Building from Sources & Keeping Plesk in the Loop

    I'm just getting started with Plesk and would like to be able to upgrade my system components (Apache, MySQL, PHP, named, mcrypt, gd, and other libraries). However, I do not wish to use rpms to do so. I compile from sources (sometimes with custom modifications) and then install. I am not interested in using the yum tool that I've seen posts about.

    I don't know how Plesk knows where to look for installed components and don't want to break it. The documentation for Plesk (that I've found) doesn't address what I would consider to be basic stuff: how does Plesk know about and manage OS components?

    Thanks for any assistance!
