Asterisk has a number of optional build dependencies.  If you intend to use
any analogue PSTN hardware such as DigiumTDM400P, you should install the
dahdi-linux and dahdi-tools software and drivers before compiling Asterisk.
If you will instead use digital telephony hardware (not IP phones) such as
T1/E1 lines or a PRI, you'll need to install libpri, again before compiling

Be sure to see /usr/doc/asterisk- after installation
for any additional configuration files you may need.

With 1.8+ release of Asterisk, Add-ons are shipped in the main package.
but disabled by default. Since some of the add-ons are quite useful, this
script will build them, unless ofcourse, the ADDON variable is set as:

ADDONS=no ./asterisk.SlackBuild

The list of pre-selected add-ons is as follows:

app_mysql cdr_mysql chan_ooh323 res_config_mysql
