Thanks Skylar. I just found I have bigger problems. I thought I was
done since ipmitool did a happy make; make install.

But nope:

./src/ipmitool -I open chassis status
Could not open device at /dev/ipmi0 or /dev/ipmi/0 or /dev/ipmidev/0:
No such file or directory
Error sending Chassis Status command

I don't think I have the impi devices visible. From googling this
seems a bigger project needing insertion of some kernel modules. There
goes my weekend! :)
