take a look at your distribution. probably sue9.3 comes with eterm that should install without problems. at least 9.0 does...

Now that has to be the classic example of dependancy hell!

Where did you get the files from and are you sure they're designed for openSuSE? If push comes to shove, I suppose you could snag the tarballs and build/install them that way.
