Asterisk install issues CentOS

I am getting an error during the "make" portion of an asterisk install.  Here are some prerequisites, that make the issue rather frustrating, but maybe someone here can shine some light:

- I have done this exact same install, two times prior today, on 2 other boxes, by following the instructions verbatim at the site link below.  The only difference between the current box, and the 2 others, is this one is 64 bit.  All boxes are running Centos 5.3.  Here is the article I followed:

http://www.voip-info.org/wiki/view/CentOS+5+and+Asterisk+1.4.x+installation

- Here is the error I get, during the make:

/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/libidn.so when searching for -lidn
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/libidn.a when searching for -lidn
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lidn
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [asterisk] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/asterisk/asterisk-1.4.25.1/main'
make: *** [main] Error 2

----  So I tested an install of Asterisk through "yum" (same version 1.4.25.1)  .... It worked fine, no errors....
---- I figured well maybe the yum installed a dependency or something I missed, and tried the manual way again... Of course running make clean, make distclean, before configuring from usr/src/ but it again failed with the same error message.

Anyone have any idea why this is happening.  I would really appreciate the help.  Thanks!!!

is it "curl-devel" ?  If it is, then it is already installed.

Curl is already installed.... I reinstalled the entire OS ... built all dependencies again, including curl.... Error changed, but relatively similar:

/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/libgssapi_krb5.so when searching for -lgssapi_krb5
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/libgssapi_krb5.a when searching for -lgssapi_krb5
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgssapi_krb5
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [asterisk] Error 1

Others say it is related to a mixed 32/64 bit setup

maybe just going pure 64 may do the trick

what a disaster....

Do you know the exact line to add to yum.conf to make sure it does not download i386 packages?

I guess this is a messy process.

1. a bare minimal install of x86_64
2. remove any i[3,5,6]86 packages
3. update yum.conf to exclude *.i386 *.i586 *.i686
4. manually force reinstall any affected x86_64 packages
5. yum groupinstall everything else you need with the excludes in place.

Thanks man....

... Yea I think I will just install Centos 32 bit, and be done with it.  I am only really using this box for Asterisk, so I do not see how I will even miss the 64 bit edition of Centos.... Sound like a good solution?

Very much so. 64 bit is over-rated right now. Great for certain things but a big hassle for others to config.

Until 64-bit is fully compatible to what needs to be installed for your particular application(s)... 32-bit is the most stable setup in my opinion.

64bit really is only beneficial if you have more than 4GB of ram.  Less than that and you're better off sticking with 32bit.
