compiling coda-4.3.13

I have tried compiling coda-4.3.13 (from both the rpm and the tarball),
and have run into tha same problem with both.  After numerous compiler
warnings about implicitly casting pointers, I get:

cc -g -g -gstabs -MD -DLINUX  -I- -I. 
-I/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/coda-4.3.13/include -I/usr/include
-DPRIVATE=static   -c filcon.c -o filcon.o
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `-ltermcap', needed by `filcon'.
make[2]: Leaving directory
----> Error in fail
make[1]: *** [Coda] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/coda-4.3.13/coda-src'
----> Error in coda-src
make: *** [Coda] Error 1

This looks to me like a bug in a Makefile somewhere -- it is trying to
build "-ltermcap" instead of treating that as a compiler flag -- but I
cannot track down where this problem is coming from.  Has anyone else run
into this?  

I am running RedHat 4.2 (kernel 2.0.30).  My only unusual patch I'm using
is one to optimize performance for my Cyrix 6x86 processor... I'd be
surprised if that was causing me trouble.
