Jesse,

thanks for your quick reply.

1. I was looking for openvswitch.ko (typo in the email post).
2. No make errorrs even after "make clean" and "make".

I might missing something in my installation (see below) cause when I run
the "./configure" I do get several "no". Not sure if I need to install
anything else.

BTW, I do get all other applications install properly under /usr/local/bin
and usr/local/sbin/
