Sorry, I meant MAKE_ARGS, but that didn't work.

But this partially works:

Then I see that patches/patch-ab has:
+#if !(defined(__sun__) && defined(__svr4__))
 #define killpg(a, b) kill(-(a), (b))

which is wrong for Linux.

And under Linux the bzero should not be defined in config.h.

And ./metamail/Makefile and ./richmail/Makefile assume Linux has
libtermcap which is not available as a package, but libncurses coule be
used for now.

This package has many problems.
