I am trying to setup sendmail 8.8.8 on a Solaris 2.5.1 machine.  I run the makesendmail script and get the following error:
Configuration: os=SunOS, rel=5.5.1, rbase=5, rroot=5.5, arch=sun4, sfx=
Making in obj.SunOS.5.5.1.sun4
/usr/local/gnu/bin/gcc -I. -O -I/usr/sww/include -DNEWDBM -DNDBM -DNIS -DNISPLUS
 -DSOLARIS=20500  -c  alias.c
In file included from alias.c:35:
sendmail.h:1170: parse error before `TopFrame'
sendmail.h:1170: warning: data definition has no type or storage class
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `alias.o'

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Read the Readme file

I remember reading about the TopFrame Error

If I remember well you have to disable optimization during
compiling and use the latest version of gcc.

try a different compiler..  I've run into problems where GCC doesn't work, but C++ does..  depending on what you've got installed on your system, I would try a different compiler...


good luck
