No, what he means is that your OS distro likely has some sort of package 
manager built into it.  Gentoo has portage, RedHat has up2date/RPM, 
Debian has apt-get.  Your particular OS will have a supported package.

Of course you can always build memcached yourself from the source you 
have downloaded.  AFAIK, 1.2.0 is in use in production systems.  We are 
running 1.1.12 as that is the current version supported by Gentoo's 
Portage package system.  1.2.0 is still in testing for Gentoo.
