Hallo Christoph,

I have been using SuSE since 7.2 (and now SuSE 9.2) and never had too 
much problems with compiling - since I had learned that with package 
distros you need to install additionally the devel-package of a 
package if "configure" complaints, that "prog x" is missing. 
Sometimes you need to compile also a library that is not up to date 
in the distro, but not very often - and without headaches.

no problem

no experience

compiled, but the 0.41 static rpm works as well.

haven't tried yet, because of no need.
