Sorry, I realized I was unclear. Unless you really enjoy unfurling the
building of bleeding edge software, or someone is paying you for it,
it's much safer and faster to get a tested build from your favorite
upstream distributor, even if it's not the latest version. The switch
from 1.9.3 to 1.9.7 would not, in my opinion. justify the work of
taking this project on to build it locally if you have a day job. Been
there, done that, have published hundreds of update RPM's, and unless
you like to develop RPM's or handbuild software to feel empowered,
it's not worth the work.
