where to put your compiled source (Evolution)

You shouldn't do it in /usr/bin, that's for certain! /usr/bin is where the final program will go, but you don't build it there. Either use your home directory or something like /usr/local/src."I'm just a little old lady; don't try to dazzle me with jargon!"
You probably need to look at the File Heirarchy Standard. It will help you understand where files should go on a Unix system. /usr/bin is for binaries only, so you shouldn't be extracting anything in there.
