I'd like to compile GIT on our company's SLES10 machine. Unfortunately, the system is missing a few dependencies and it has been locked down such that no more packages can be installed on a system-wide basis. The missing packages, so far as I can tell, are:



Is there some way to easily compile these packages in my home directory by making use of the SRPMs? The problem that I'm running into is that curl depends on openssl. I can compile the openssl SRPM, but I have no means to install it, so that doesn't help me around the dependency problem. Any ideas?
