The rpm sets up a separate user account for rabbit, configures log 
rotation, and startup scripts, etc. i.e. does everything you'd expect a 
well-behaved service to do on an rpm-based system. The generic unix 
install does none of that.

Unless there are compelling reasons not to, I strongly recommend you 
follow the installation instructions for the specific platform, i.e. in 
your case http://www.rabbitmq.com/install-rpm.html
