From which source exactly? What's the complete download URL you used
to get this patch?

You should know which parameters your used to compile vpopmail. You
should have seen a summary of used parameters when you
'./configure'-ed vpopmail.

other tools, unless you want to authenticate against a different data
base than vpopmails.
