Latest Sendmail, GCC Don’t Mix

Michael Amper reports that the latest Sendmail 8.12.10 doesn’t compile cleanly with Apple’s most recent 3.3 version of the GCC compiler. While this certainly isn’t the first package to have problems compiling via GCC 3.3 on Mac OS X, Sendmail is usually the type of application one would like to keep current given its apparent penchant for security exploits. Temporarily downgrading to GCC 3.1 is one solution; deploying a more secure mail transfer agent such as Exim or Postfix is another.
