[jp] Building JPilot on SuSE 10.3 - Missing pilot-link Header Files

I installed the libpisync-devel package. Is there another binary which 
has the pilot-link headers? Or perhaps they're just not being found by 
JPilot's configure script?

Also, running the pilot-link configure script --with-included-popt 
resulted in the same error during make - missing popt.h.

However, after installing the popt-devel pkg, the pilot-link build 
proceeded without errors.

But the pilot-xfer and other binaries I recognize are missing from the 
build tree. There's a libpisock.la and a libpisync.la, though.

Something fundamental has changed, apparently. Might I have better luck 
with pilot-link 0.12.2?
