compile Firewall Builder

Hi! When i try to compile Firewall Builder 2.0.7 on a Solaris 10 x86 Box i get the following configure error:
configure: error: "libutil not found, can not use forkpty"
It seems there is no libutil on the System. The most libs are installed in /lib /usr/lib /usr/local/lib and the LD_LIBRARY_PATH is set to the right directories. Do i need libutil? And where can i get it? Can someone help?
