Told you it's dirty. You are the developers, I just kindly pointed to the bug with a simple proof-of-concept code. > This code does not belong in main().

Well this is the code you get if I don't get any answers for my mails. In regards to configure: actually despite that courier strives to use autoconf-shit and libtool-shit therefore slowing down compilation by 200%, it couldn't achieve being truly crossplatform (well those tools will never ever be): - it doesn't check if the compiler accepts the format "-Wall" (DEC C doesn't). - it doesn't check if [v]snprintf is available, and therefore doesn't use replacement routines - after the crypt() prototype checking there is a serious braindamage which can break compilation with a bogus errormsg like "conftest2.c not existing" (if conftest.c creation failed in the first place) so I had to just remove it entirely - there are some files which don't compile with DEC C, only gcc (I don't bother, that's usual when dealing with "F/OSS" - that means: linuxonly by developer carelessness - code) - despite all the libtool braindamagemagic, courier couldn't find / usr/pkg/lib/libgdbm.so by itself, so I had to LD_LIBRARY_PATH it - so it looks like there are stuff needed to be fixed around -rpath. Because -rpath is the preferred way for this, and not the hacky- linuxy method described in the Courier FAQ: > It is also possible that libgdbm.so is not found at runtime because your dynamic linker doesn't search /usr/local/lib either.
