I did it with 1.3.1->1.3.2 and it worked well. If you decide to compile
your own iptables, you should take care of the paths. E.g. debian has
/sbin/iptables and the sources from install in
/usr/local/sbin. If you don't want this, edit the Makefile and chnge
vars PREFIX, LIBDIR,..., to fit your needs.

Have a nice time,
