Don't worry about setuid files -- Cygwin does not support them.  If you
can get Smartlist to build, then try running it (as a service) under the
LocalSystem account which *can* setuid.

Huh?  Does Smartlist build cleanly?

I seem to be repeating myself -- Does Smartlist build against procmail
3.22?  If not, then you can try back porting my patches against 3.15,
but you are on your own.  I will only support procmail 3.22.
