Description Kenneth Porter 2003-05-18 11:26:49 EDT
libmilter is built, but the sendmail binary lacks milter support in 8.12.9-6.
Need the following in redhat.config.m4:

APPENDDEF(`conf_sendmail_ENVDEF', `-DMILTER')
APPENDDEF(`conf_libmilter_ENVDEF', `-D_FFR_MILTER_ROOT_UNSAFE')
Comment 1 Kenneth Porter 2003-05-19 19:31:14 EDT
After learning that the same RPM built on RH9 provides MILTER fine, I looked
more closely at what was going on, and see that redhat.config.m4 is built using
one of 3 different patches, based on OS version. For some reason MILTER is not
included when building on 7.2 or earlier. Why not?

It would seem that either it should be included or libmilter should not be built
if milter support is not wanted, since a milter built without a milter-capable
sendmail is useless.
Comment 2 Florian La Roche 2003-12-11 09:57:43 EST
The current rpm does not support building on older releases without
some changes in it. If you send in patches that improve the current
situation, I can look at merging them in. I don't plan on doing this
from my end.

greetings,
