I built the kernel from the Linux Kernel Archives, not SuSE. I got the latest audit source from the audit-1.2.x site. The audit software seems to compile fine upto audit-1.2.3, but it fails with the compile errors as described earlier, with versions audit-1.2.4 upwards. Is audit being developed strictly under the Red Hat build? Do I need some package that I am missing?

I think the kernel headers are your problem. I don't think I'd replace that.
And you do not have to have SE Linux enabled since this is a define from the
audit kernel headers. That said, I don't think you need to rebuild the user
The problem you are seeing would be a kernel bug most likely. It is what
evaluates the rules and decides if it needs to output an event. So, with the
new kernel and auditctl from Suse, do you see the problem?
