Interestingly (not surprisingly, though) SuSE doesn't have a
/lib/libc-2* directory, even though it has libc-2.x... SuSE has an
irritating habit of placing directories in stupid places. tcptrace
attempts to detect libc-2.x by looking for a directory named
/lib/libc-2* (this probably isn't the Right Check to Do, but it
works everywhere else), which is failing on your system - so the
following isn't added into the Makefile for CFLAGS:


If you add that in before the $(INCLS) at the end of the CFLAGS
clause in the Makefile, it should build.
