Ummm... you mean you pulled the source RPM from the  ELDK  directory?
Or what?

If I remember correctly, you're running on a SuSE  system?  We  never
verified  building  in sucha n environment. Under RH-7.x (x=1,2,3) it
works fine.

No. The only case where superuser permissions are needed is to create
the /dev entries (running the ELDK_MAKEDEV script) after installation
of the tools - but this is only necessary when you want to export the
native tools on a NFS server.
