Problems on FC3

I've got a IBM Thinkpad T41 with an IBM 801b.11a/b/g wireless card
running Fedora Core 3, fully updated.

I installed the NetworkManager RPM (NetworkManager-0.3.1-3).

'sudo service start NetworkManager' gets me:

Starting NetworkManager daemon:
** (process:31643): CRITICAL **: file NetworkManagerDevice.c: line 368
(nm_device_unref): assertion `dev != NULL' failed

as does running 'sudo NetworkManager' manually.

OK, fine says I. :-)  Download the SRPM to rebuild it and get:

Distribution targeting: RedHat
if this is not correct, please specifiy your distro with
+ make
make  all-recursive

'./'`NetworkManagerAP.c; \
then mv -f ".deps/NetworkManagerAP.Tpo" ".deps/NetworkManagerAP.Po"; \
else rm -f ".deps/NetworkManagerAP.Tpo"; exit 1; \
In file included from NetworkManagerAP.c:23:
NetworkManagerUtils.h:43: error: syntax error before '*' token
make[2]: *** [NetworkManagerAP.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/NetworkManager-0.3.1/src'

make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/NetworkManager-0.3.1'
make: *** [all] Error 2
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.19075 (%build)

OK.  So I download the code from CVS and run the command as
per the NetworkManager web page and get:

checking whether gcc understands -Wno-unused... yes
checking whether gcc understands -Wno-strict-aliasing... yes
checking whether gcc understands -Wno-sign-compare... yes
checking whether gcc understands -Wdeclaration-after-statement... yes
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating Makefile
config.status: error: cannot find input file:

So, what's up?  I would assume the RPM works, but it sure doesn't appear
to for FC3, and I can't seem to get it built any other way.  I'd like to
try out this app, as I feel its an important advance in managing linux,
and can't seem to get there...
