how do i get the squid-devel package? yum seach squid-devel comes up
with nothing, and i really dont want to add a 3rd party rpm into the
mix for stability reasons.  smartfilter needs be to point it to the
source for squid so it can patch it for use with smartfilter, so would
that be the devel package or the srpm that i need?  Im unsure.  and
eventually this box will have lyris running on it as well, and it has
enough problems of its own ;-)
