I'd be hesitant to rsync /usr/lib if it's ba enough to cause

configure/recompile vpopmail with the existing headers/libraries in
order to fix your problem rather than change your system and
everything that depends on it.
except that all the binaries - vpopmail, qmail, everything - came
from the other server as well. again - these are, in all other
respects - absolutely identical servers. exact same CPU modules.
exact same amount of ram. identical motherboard. identical PROM
versions. identical attached hardware. both Solaris 9. the only
difference between the two servers being OS patch levels. and that's
where the problem clearly lay.
i'll be doing considerable additional testing of the server before
the actual migration/cutover, next weekend. if there are any
problems, i'll find out about them.
actually....now that i've thought about it for more than six seconds
- yeah. it does make seriously good sense to recompile everything. at
minimum it reduces the likelyhood of problems later if i upgrade.
