Hi all

I need to roll a new sudo rpm in which the sudoers file is found on an
NFS drive (eg /nfs/etc/sudoers).

I've downloaded
ftp://ftp.falsehope.com/pub/sudo/sudo-1.6.8p12-1.src.rpm, made some
changes to the .spec file and built the RPM.  Once the new RPM is
installed when I try and use 'sudo' I get an error saying "undefined
symbold: closefrom".

I've gone over the ./configure logs and found: 
configure:26268: checking for closefrom
configure:26318: gcc -o conftest -O2 -g -pipe -fpie  -pie conftest.c
/tmp/ccIRxaVc.o(.text+0x3): In function `main':
/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/sudo-1.6.8p12/configure:26397: undefined reference
to `closefrom'
gure:26397: undefined reference to `closefrom

Yet the config.h still ends up with 


I've had no problem building this RPM on RHEL 4.

Any ideas?
