No.  1.7 is a developer's version.  You have to build from source.  The
latest FAQ explains the number-scheme change.

But the defaults for the program otherwise are all /usr/local.  Unless
you're willing to track down all the RPM-specific differences, and
document them, I don't imagine this will change.
