I think FC6 changed, getting infinitely pickier about what licenses
they are willing to distribute code with. Turns out that the FC5 rpm
from updates installs fine on FC6, so I dug it up that way. Also dug up
the src rpm while I was at it, and see there are a couple of patches
needed to compile with the FC6 headers. I assume whoever produced the
patches already reported them to the kermit guys.

The spec file in the src rpm builds the "redhat9" target with some
additional options passed it. I get all the krberos and SSL junk
I sometimes need building that way (I'm not sure make linux does
all of those).

Maybe livna could pick up kermit (hint, hint? :-).
