There's the difference. I don't trust the current omnibus package, so
I install from source. That decision is old, but at the time we
installed, there wasn't an omnibus package.

There lies your problem I believe. I'm pretty sure this doesn't apply

A proper package would rely on system libraries only.

Shipping software, targeting multiple Linux distributions is hard. 

Anyway, this is getting off-topic. Using the only appropriate
install method for this package takes considerable effort.

It is. I don't agree that a manual installation from source is "the
only appropriate install method". That is a rather extreme position to
take and one I'm sure our sysadmins doesn't hold.

In short, I don't consider this an issue.
