[linux-lvm] still need to install device mapper with 2.6 kernel?



  i think i'm confused about the support for device mapper in the 
2.6 kernel.  i'm aware that i need to install device-mapper for
LVM2, and i know where to get the device-mapper tarball.

  but, in the configuration process for the 2.6 kernel, you can 
select device mapper support, so i did and built it into the
kernel.  i assumed (perhaps unwisely) that device mapper was now
part of the 2.6 kernel source tree, and i now had it since i'd
selected it as part of the configuration in the kernel build for
my 2.6.0-test11 kernel.  therefore, i didn't need to explicitly 
install device-mapper anymore.

  however, when i went to configure/make LVM2 on my FC1 system,
the configure worked fine, but the make gave me:

...

gcc -c -I. -I../include -DLVM1_INTERNAL -DDEVMAPPER_SUPPORT 
-DO_DIRECT_SUPPORT -DHAVE_LIBDL -DHAVE_GETOPTLONG -fPIC -Wall -Wundef 
-Wshadow -Wcast-align -Wwrite-strings -Wmissing-prototypes 
-Wmissing-declarations -Wnested-externs -Winline -O2 cache/lvmcache.c -o

  note the reference to no libdevmapper.h file.  so what's the
proper recipe?  what exactly was the effect of adding device-mapper
support to my kernel?  do i still have to explicitly configure/make
and install device-mapper myself?  am i just confused?
