Hi all,

recently I removed the original version of sendmail that ships with red hat 9.0.

I have downloaded sendmail 8.12.11 and untared the file into my /usr/src directory.

upon changing to sendmail-8.12.11 and running sh Build, I get the error messages:

-----------

[root@Intranet src]# cd sendmail-8.12.11
