I get no errors configuring, but make fails for
several reasons. The code is from 2002, and requires
headers no more available.

The modern tool is ' wireshark ', I think.
( Google .. capture remote packets .. )

Get wireshark with your Package Manager or ..
# yum install wireshark

Good luck .. .. ..
