That's because all oVirt documentation is community driven. This specific page was written by a guy I happen to know quite well (I wrote it):)

This was written back when there was no easy to install package, where you had to do that by hand, and if you want to, you still can, the method still works. But I agree that if there's an easier way today, I think we should go with that first and keep this compiling method as the fallback.

> 3.) Is there anyone who might want to merge RH docs with oVirt docs where the RH docs are better than oVirt?

Hoping someone @RH can answer this, because I don't know if I'm allowed to do that?
