You really should not build it yourself but use the supplied version.
But rebuilding with RPM is not that difficult. You can use the build
script that comes with SuSE 8.0 or use rpm directly as documented in
the RPM manuals. You just have to take care that you compile the
package for i686 if you like to have floating stacks.
P.S. Please follow-up privatly, I think this is off-topic here.
