Then typically, you reply to the same discussion thread instead of
posting a new one, so that we have context from the discussion.  Then
I'd have known this was the same problem as before.

yum install libnl3-devel

is what you need to get the appropriate libraries on Fedora.  That RPM
includes all the development headers and libraries needed to build
software that uses libnl version 3.  For Fedora, typically the
"development headers" packages are the same name as the master package,
plus "-devel" added to the name.
