Description AlexB 2011-04-19 05:15:13 EDT
The sendmail-devel headers and possibly the library are 5 years out of year date. They contain headers from 2006 while sendmail / libmilter 8.14 have headers from 2009. The structures and handling of SMFI_VERSION have changed between 8.13 and 8.14.
This causes build problem, crashes, and failure for some milters to use newer features.
