Are Open Source programs installed with 'popular automated script installers' likely to have any of these problems:

-Unable to function if moved to a host without 'Fa____o'?
-Generally more prone to errors?
-other problems.

I once read a developer say something about 'blank spots' in the code from 'popular automated script installers', but I'm just wondering in general if they are equal to 'hand-crafted' installations?

And specifically I'm curious about the auto-installed folder called 'Fa____o' data. This would suggest the programs won't function properly if moved to a host without the same set-up, correct?

Thank you very much.
