Tor is out

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?
