The build/install procedure for serialmail is the usual
make setup check.
First, obtain the source distribution for the package. Right click on the link above; use ftp, wget, curl, lynx -dump; whatever works for you. The installation procedure described below assumes the package will be available on your system in /usr/local/djb/dist/serialmail-0.75.tar.gz.
Verify the MD5 checksum:
# cd /usr/local/djb/dist # md5 serialmail-0.75.tar.gz MD5 (serialmail-0.75.tar.gz) = e6a3049863ae8577b1780fcd9fbc98a9
If the reported checksum doesn't agree, the package has been altered or corrupted. Delete the package and download it again from a trusted source.
Unpack the archive into your build directory:
# cd /usr/local/djb/build # tar -xzvf ../dist/serialmail-0.75.tar.gz
You should now find a new directory in /usr/local/djb/build named serialmail-0.75. Change into this directory:
# cd serialmail-0.75
Apply patches as necessary.
errno patch is for GNU glibc systems as described in
the appendix errno patches.
# patch -p1 < ../../patches/serialmail-0.75.errno.patch
Then continue with the build/install:
# make # make setup check
