Fedora 8 was released in November 2007 . It is not supported anymore
since January 2009 . I cannot test the ROHC library on all OSes that
existed one day. It probably works fine. Try it. If you encounter a
problem, tell me. I'll try to provide you some help.

Yes. It is not a released version, so there is always the risk to have a
regression, but all tests run fine on all systems the library was tested

Start with the rohc_compress2() function in the code. That function is
the entry point for ROHC compression. Read the code of the function.
Then read the code of the functions the rohc_compress2() function calls.
And so on. The code contains many comments and references to the RFCs
related to ROHC. Keep an eye on the RFCs while reading the code.

You cannot follow the instructions blindly because you don't use a release version, but a snapshot of the dev version:
- step 1: do it
- step 2: do it
- step 3: skip it
- step 4: adapt the name of the archive
- step 5: skip it
- step 6: adapt the name of the directory
- step 7: replace ./configure by ./autogen.sh
- steps 8-10 : do them
