I had trouble with autoconf (not the GNU autoconf program),
determining how many 16 byte arguments execv() takes, but
sticking the autoconf.h at the above site in procmail-3.22, and
then running make bins and make mans, and then make install.bin
and make install.man, instead of install in the above make
sequence, I was able to get it to build.
I also got SmartList, the accompanying mailing list package of
scripts, C programs and procmail recipes, to build and
list creation and subscriptions, and mail distribution
seems to be OK, except the recipes and scripts which should be
linked aren't linked and I sometimes have file locking problems.
Why is it necessary to rename LN=ln to cp?
I have to run the pre-built fetchmail from the above site to
download the mails but ssmtp sends the distributed mail back out
automatically. I hardlinked a sendmail to ssmtp.
