Installation confusion on Gafton's Shadow Suite

I am a "newbie" trying to use RPM. I downloaded Gafton's shadow suite, 
and did rpm -i shadow-utils-960810-3.i386.rpm

Got lots of errors. I was advised to do rpm -U instead, so I did.

It seemed to work, but I didn't get the adduser and deluser utilities I 
was looking for. Closer inspection showed a file called 
shadow-960810.tar.gz was created and left in usr/src/redhat ...

I unzipped and untArred and there was a configure file - i did 
./configure, then a makefile was created, but make failed to finish.

Here's the errors:

make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/shadow/shadow-960810/libmisc'
gcc -c -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.. -I../lib  -O2 -Wall obscure.c
obscure.c: In function `password_check':
obscure.c:159: redeclaration of `msg'
obscure.c:156: `msg' previously declared here
make[2]: *** [obscure.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/shadow/shadow-960810/libmisc'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/shadow/shadow-960810'
make: *** [all-recursive-hack] Error 2  

Then I noticed a readme that said this might not work; the last working 
release was 960325, but I didn't find that file on the ftp server.

Any suggestions or advice on how to install these shadow utilities or 
what I did wrong is very much appreciated.
