Definitely.  If a library is a prerequisite for the package, you should
ITP it before we upload any dependent package.  If the build is ok, it's
more or less preapproved if it's GTG.

I'm just a bit puzzled.  Isn't suexec an application, and isn't it part
of apache, usually?  Also, since when is procmail dependent on suexec?
It isn't on Fedora and they certainly use almost all of procmail's

Oh, and while I was looking I found this:  The original procmail 3.22
sources are not IPv6-enabled.  Would you mind to add the Fedora patch(*)
for that, too?
