In the future, if you bump against similar errors, it may be useful to keep a full log of the build commands that failed, i.e. by running thm inside script(1): % script Script started, output file is typescript % make buildworld buildkernel [ snip output ] % exit exit Script done, output file is typescript % Then you can attach the file 'typescript', or filter the file through col(1) to convert it to plain ASCII text and insert its contents in an email. > > after doing a 'find / -name libsmutil.a' > libsmutil.a exists at: /usr/obj/usr/src/lib/libsmutil/libsmutil.a The libsmutil.a library builds fine here with the following in my `make.conf' file: SENDMAIL_CFLAGS= -I/usr/local/include -DSASL=2 SENDMAIL_LDFLAGS= -L/usr/local/lib SENDMAIL_LDADD= -lsasl2 Can you show us what your `make.conf' looks like, and describe how you tried to build Sendmail? - Giorgos _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
