[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] ipsec-tools and openssl for N770

First of all I'd like to ask if someone has got ready for use 
'ipsec-tools' package for N770? I didn't find one in Application Catalog 

That's why I am trying to build it myself inside armel Scratchbox target.
However, it has some build-depends such as libkrb5-dev and libreadline5-dev.
Maemo repositories do not contain these libraries so I am not able to 
install them using 'apt-get install'.
Trying to build from the sources inside armel target does not succeed. I 
got an error while configuring:

configure: loading cache ../../.././config.cache
checking for gcc... (cached) gcc
checking for C compiler default output... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... configure: error: cannot run C 
compiled programs.
If you meant to cross compile, use `--host'.
configure: error: /bin/sh '/krb5-1.4.3/src/lib/rpc/unit-test/configure' 
failed for unit-test
configure: error: /bin/sh '/krb5-1.4.3/src/lib/rpc/configure' failed for 

Any idea on above?

Also are there some other repositories from where I can fetch needed 
packages for Scratchbox?
I know that Scratchbox has crocodile 'repository' I even have used for 
installing packages for maemo 1.1. However I wasn't able to find the 
same for armel. My sources.list file inside armel target looks like:

deb http://catalogue.tableteer.nokia.com/certified/     mistral user
deb http://catalogue.tableteer.nokia.com/non-certified/ mistral user
deb http://repository.maemo.org/contrib/ mistral free non-free
deb-src http://repository.maemo.org/contrib/ mistral free non-free
deb http://repository.maemo.org/ mistral free non-free
deb-src http://repository.maemo.org/ mistral free non-free

Another question is that if I run 'dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -d' (to 
override build dependencies) would the software (ipsec-tools in this 
case) have full functionality after installing it on the device? Meaning 
that if it was built without some libraries etc.

I will also need openssl lib and dev headers for my tablet. I haven't 
tried to built it yet but any information/experience from you would be 

Thank you in advance for any help,
