Install it and use it are two very different things.

Sure, one installs the library from rpms, debs, ports, ...
But programming with a library without looking at its source
code?  If one is legally permitted to, who would throw away
such a source of examples (whether they are dedicated
examples or not), a style guide, ..., and above all the
ultimate reference?

So I would expect most people to get the source code

I may not be typical, but in my use of glib etc thusfar for netperf I've not had any desire to install source unless I was compileing somewhere were I didnt' already have a binary/library. I'm not really interested in how library call foo is implemented, I just want to know how to call it do get my work done.
