ecryptfs installation problem

hi all,
I have got a RHEL distro. I wanted to tryout ecryptfs.
I downloaded and compiled the kernel with the correct options for the ecryptfs to work - as per the sourceforge project page.
There is no problem on that.
However, I need the ecryptfs utils also so I downloaded the source tarball from the sourceforge site and when I ./configure the same it works fine but make gives a problem, which is as under :
In file included from pam_ecryptfs.c:39:
../include/ecryptfs.h:45:2: warning: #warning NETLINK_ECRYPTFS not defined in netlink.h
pam_ecryptfs.c: In function `error':
pam_ecryptfs.c:46: error: `ENOKEY' undeclared (first use in this function)
pam_ecryptfs.c:46: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
pam_ecryptfs.c:46: error: for each function it appears in.)
pam_ecryptfs.c:50: error: `EKEYEXPIRED' undeclared (first use in this function)
pam_ecryptfs.c:54: error: `EKEYREVOKED' undeclared (first use in this function)
pam_ecryptfs.c:58: error: `EKEYREJECTED' undeclared (first use in this function)make[2]: *** [pam_ecryptfs.lo] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/opt/ecryptfs-utils-23/src/pam_ecryptfs'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/opt/ecryptfs-utils-23/src'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

Can you suggest what should I do to set the thing working and have a succesful make and make install for the ecryptfs utils package.
