Ah, is this on identry.com? I have an account on that ISP also.
And odd timing -- I was just writing them to complain about their lack
GNU bash, version 2.01.0(23)-release (i686-pc-linux-gnu)
Copyright 1996 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
This is perl, version 5.004_01
ssh: SSH Secure Shell 2.4.0
That's some old stuff. Anyway,
configure is a shell script. I was able to get it to run by commenting
out this line:
#$as_unset ENV MAIL MAILPATH
I have no idea why that would cause a segfault in bash.
I was able to then build swish. BUT, I tried it a second time and now it
won't build. It's writing config.cache and then executing it, but it also
has that unset line, so it's causing a segfault, too.
I'll see if the autoconf list has any suggestions, but I think it's
something related to he.net.
