I have some servers with linux 2.6.18.

I know... but I cannot upgrade because of legacy applications, it's ok for us, 
they are only for intranet usage.

Pls a few questions:

1) configure and compile vs dnsmasq --help

I want only the DNS daemon, a minimal version (not authoritative).

I tried this:


and it succeded.

However running

     src/dnsmasq --help

I still see some options regarding the excluded features (like dhcp).

Is this ok ?

2) dependencies

>From the  http://www.thekelleys.org.uk/dnsmasq/CHANGELOG

I don't understand the dependencies on shared libraries.

Example: an excerpt from ver 2.79

        Tidy up Crypto code, removing workarounds for ancient
        versions of libnettle. We now require libnettle 3.

With the aforementioned options (1), is libnettled required?

The output of ldd src/dnsmasq shows only

        linux-vdso.so.1 =>  (0x00002aaaaaaab000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib64/libc.so.6 (0x0000003ed4800000)
        /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x0000003ed4400000)

On linux  2.6.18 I tried to download and compile libnettle3, but there are too 
many broken dependencies.
Is it possibile to use dnsmasq 2.80 without this library?
