cannot compute sizeof (struct iaddr *)

Hi all,

I am new to the list and in fact also new to building dhcp from source.
Unfortunately, I immediately ran into a problem during the ./configure 

The following error message appears:
    checking for struct iaddr *... yes
    checking size of struct iaddr *... configure: error: cannot compute 
sizeof (struct iaddr *)

I am trying to build dhcp 4.0.0 on a minimal install of Fedora 8. In the 
log file I get messages like:
    configure: failed program was:
    | /* confdefs.h.  */


configure: failed program was:
| /* confdefs.h.  */

I have tried quiet a few things, but nothing worked. Has anyone an idea 
what this could be?
