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:

curl-devel

openssl-devel

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?

Thanks,
Greg
