unfortunately suse 10.0 does not install on any of our newer servers (9.3 does
not either), there seems to be a problem with the raid-controller ...

in suse 10.0 (to be more precise: opensuse 10.0) i can not find a package named
"perl-devel" either! and as rlm_perl.a and are created it looks
like this is not needed.
but with this version (oss-10.0) i got other errors in rlm_krb5.c,
  rlm_krb5.c: In function âkrb5_authâ:
  rlm_krb5.c:366: warning: pointer targets in assignment differ in signedness
  rlm_krb5.c:367: warning: pointer targets in assignment differ in signedness
  rlm_krb5.c:379: error: âstruct krb5_principal_dataâ has no member named ânameâ

  rlm_krb5.c:395: warning: format â%sâ expects type âchar *â, but argument 5 has
type âkrb5_dataâ
  gmake[6]: *** [rlm_krb5.o] Error 1

but this actually seems to become another thread ;-)

hmm, i deleted "postgresql" in "BuildRequires" and i think i do have a modules
for postgresql:

  ldapserv1:/usr/lib/freeradius # ls rlm_sql_postgresql*
  ldapserv1:/usr/lib/freeradius #
but as i do not have postgresql server installed i can not test them.

  ldapserv1:~ # rpm -q mysql-devel
  ldapserv1:~ #
