Which version of net-tools are you using?
Right now, 2.1.36 requires a bunch of API patches to get a lot of the
software to compile properly. I haven't tried to compile them with the
pre-patch-2.1.37-7 installed, but 2.1.37 is support to have all the API
patches in place when it comes out. Getting this stuff crunched up
under a 2.0.x kernel is probably a lot more effort than it is worth.
In 2.0.30 they started yanking IPv6-chunks out of the header files.
I believe net-tools 1.40 or 1.41 is current. The API patch you want
is linux-advanced-api-patch-2.diff (intended for 2.1.26, but compiles
fairly cleanly against 2.1.36).
