netcat on fedora?



I'm trying to install netcat on FC1 and I'm falling flat when I try to
run the makefile.  I run "make linux" (as root) as instructed in the
makefile.  This corresponds to the following rule:

make -e $(ALL) $(MFLAGS) XFLAGS='-DLINUX' STATIC=-static CC=gcc

The output I get is reprinted at the bottom of this post.  I would
really like to get netcat running, but I've run into the wall of my
knowledge of linux at this point.  It -appears- from the output below
that I need "the glibc version for linking", but I don't even know what
that is.  I have glibc installed from yum.  I searched Google but
couldn't find anything helpful to me.

Also, precisely what I'm trying to install is: Netcat 1.10 for Unix,
version 03.20.96.  If there is any other useful info I can give, please
let me know.  Thanks in advance!

The output from the makefile:

[root localhost netcat]# make linux
make -e nc  XFLAGS='-DLINUX' STATIC=-static

cc -O -s          -DLINUX -static -o nc netcat.c
