If you mean you run on kernel 2.4 on LX, you should use
iptables. Ipchains in that situation will use the same kernel code as
iptables but with less control (it's just an API emulation to keep older
2.2-based systems working).

This however, I don't know about.. the problem with iptables before was
that the makefiles were hardcoded around shared-library linking, which we
couldn't do before. Now however it should be possible to compile and link
them without much more tweaking than setting the right compiler...
