I was going to try this on Kali Linux (latest version), but ran into 
trouble right away.  No "configure" script exists in the Github mirror. 
I fixed this by doing "autoconf && ./configure && make tests", but that 
ends up failing eventually with:

checking for struct utmp.ut_line... yes
checking whether BROKEN_GETADDRINFO is declared... no
