Quoting from the INSTALL document in rpm source:

The NSS >= 3.12 library for encryption, and NSPR library which NSS uses.
Both NSPR and NSS libraries and headers need to be installed during RPM
compilation. As NSPR and NSS typically install their headers outside
the regular include search path, you need to tell configure about this,
eg something like:
     ./configure <......> CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/include/nspr -I/usr/include/nss"

The NSPR and NSS libraries are available from

rpm >= 4.11.0 also supports beecrypt as a lighter-weight crypto
