Just a reminder, all versions prior to 0.9.6e (including the 0.7 beta) 
have some serious security vulnerabilities which were announce this
week.  I don't know if cfengine is using any of the pieces that have
problems, but I think it's safe to say you should probably link anything
you compile now to 0.9.6e or later.
