It's a multi-protocols brute-forcer, there's a similar package in fedora
'medusa', packaged in the same way even if it has a modular architecture (.so
for each service, but the package depends on libssh2, postgresql libs etc...),
hydra is on binary :/.

It seems to be 'GPLv3 with exceptions' (because of OpenSSL), I checked with
Gentoo (GPL-3) and Debian (GPL-3.0+ with OpenSSL exception)

I noticed them when I enabled CFLAGS, I'm using this build at work and it seems
very stable (heavily tested with SSH and FTP), but I'll try to help upstream to
fix them (along with mysql and CFLAGS support)

Maybe you have mysql-devel, can attach the errors
