I don't get it. Apparently there is no such things as libevent-devel for
Mandriva so I cannot build tor. Mandriva has libevent2 (but there is no
libevent2-devel) and it has libevent-devel for 1.4.8 but it conflicts with
libevent2. It also have libevent0.9_0-devel but tor doesn't care.
What libevent is tor requiring?
