Errors installing netcat ?? help plz

I downloaded netcat 110 and have problems installing.

In the readme it says to use "make linux" in the directory,

When I do this, I get an error and it exits the install.

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lc
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status.

then it proceeds with two errors and exits to the prompt.

It looks like I'm missing a lib....could that be? Please help if you have the time.

Ok...I finally figured it out. I had to install glibc, then I got more errors. It turns out you have to comment out line 1319 in order to suppress the res init error.

Hope this helps someone
