I am new to sudo and when running make I keep getting the following

gcc -o sudo check.o env.o getspwuid.o gettime.o goodpath.o fileops.o
find_path.o interfaces.o logging.o parse.o set_perms.o sudo.o
sudo_edit.o tgetpass.o zero_bytes.o  sudo_auth.o pam.o sudo.tab.o
lex.yy.o alloc.o defaults.o strlcpy.o strlcat.o closefrom.o   -lpam -ldl

inux/bin/ld: cannot find -lpam

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

make: *** [sudo] Error 1


I am running it on a redhat linux machine
