    Yes, I confirm with linux-2.6.7 and iptables-1.2.9 I got:
    gcc -march=athlon-xp -m3dnow -msse -mfpmath=sse -mmmx -O3 -pipe -Iinclude -Wall -Wunused -I/usr/src/linux/include -DIPTABLES_VERSION=\"1.2.9\" -fPIC -o extensions/libipt_stealth_sh.o -c extensions/libipt_stealth.c

    Last time I recompiled it with 2.6.6 it was ok. The compiled version still seems to work with 2.6.7 for now.
