Rather than compiling the software manually, which requires deep technical knowledge, try to install an RPM that already exists for some other distribution. SUSE Build Service is really great in this respect:

Due to some library dependencies not all packages listed there may be installable on Fedora. You have to try.

first of all you have to download the Source-Archive. You go to and download there the Release-Archive

After that, extract the archive somewhere in your Homefolder. For example /home/myusername/projects/

Now change to this directory /home/myusername/projects/linuxdcpp-1.0.0/ and compile. This projects uses the SCons Buildsystem. If not already happend you have to install this program from the Package Manager su -c 'yum install scons'. Now you can compile the program with $ scons

First, the build system checks if all necessary development packages are installed. For example, i had to install the boost-devel package. If you run there into a problem you can search for the needed package with yum. $ yum search boost. Now you can see several packages and there should be a somewhere a devel package. Now you can install this package und test the compile procedure again. If all is ok it compiles linuxdcpp and after that you can start this program with $ ./linuxdcpp. If you want to use it systemwide you have to install it in your /usr folder with scons install. I dont know which prefix he use because i dont tested this.

I found the exact solution and one should follow these steps:

Step 1: Download Source.

Step 2: Install the packages required for compilation of source code.

yum install scons zlib-devel bzip2-devel openssl-devel libglade2-devel gtk2-devel gcc-c++

This will take time depending upon the number of dependencies.

Step 3: Edit the file SConstruct and add the following:

if not conf.CheckLib('X11'):
                print '\tX11 library not found'

Step 4: Compile!

scons install

This will take time depending upon your system

Step 5: Install!

Step 6: Now that linuxdcpp has been installed, I'll show you a demo.
