If something supports X it should be compiled with X.  This means exactly

<netgod> my client has been owned severely
<netgod> this guy got root, ran packet sniffers, installed .rhosts and
	 backdoors, put a whole new dir in called /lib/"   ", which has a
	 full suite of smurfing and killing tools
<netgod> the only mistake was not deleting the logfiles
<netgod> question is how was root hacked, and that i couldnt tell u
<netgod> it is, of course, not a debian box
* netgod notes the debian box is the only one left untouched by the hacker
         -- wonder why
