[PlanetCCRMA] Installing src.rpms instead

Has the topic of installing src.rpms with synaptic or apt-get been discussed 
already? I've been searching on this topic lately and end up finding old, 
conflicting, or just incomprehensible pages on the web.
Is installing packages like Zynaddsubfx or alsamodularsynth via src.rpm more 
beneficial than a pre-compiled binary? Can I do this in synaptic or am I 
stuck with the command line apt-get source <package name>? Are there any 
good resources on editing spec files and optimizing for specific cpus?
If this has been covered, my apologies.
