    Compiling HAL 0.5.8 problems

    I'm trying to compile HAL 0.5.8 for my current box:

    VectorLinux 5.8 Standard RC3, with kernel

    It already has DBUS included, but not HAL.
    Anyway, when running the configure script it ends abruptly with this error:

    checking for POLKIT... configure: error: PolicyKit not explicitly disabled and no PolicyKit found
    I've searched all over for a PolicyKit cource package, but all I find are mail-listings refering to it.

    also, ./configure --help indicated that its not recommended to disable POLKIT.

    Any ideas on this?

    Thanks in advance!
