You need to install the sshopt package because your installation of libgr
(which supplies libpbn ... libpnm) requires it. sshopt is a package for
parsing command line arguments.  I can't imagine why the dependency is
there (it certainly isn't on Red Hat 6.2) but that is an issue for your
distribution supplier.
