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? :-).
