Re: Trying to get sendmail-8.15.1 from pkgsrc working on NetBSD-5, libresolv issues

} 	This has the side effect of causing everything built with pkgsrc
} sources under NetBSD-5 forward to get libpthread linked in.  So, any shared
} libraries that get used with sendmail, also have  libpthread linked to
} them, causing the sendmail binary to get tagged as a threaded binary.
} 	Threading works fine under NetBSD-5, the problem is sendmail's use of
} the _res structure for DNS queries.

     sendmail has not messed with the _res structure since sendmail
8.14.9 was imported almost four years.  There is an exception to
this general rule when using SASL as there is some kind of weird
problem that happens when SASL, NAMED_RESN (pkgsrc specific) and
MILTER are all defined.

     However, you missed option 3, which is to upgrade to a supported
version of NetBSD.  Seriously, if this box is facing the Internet, then
running NetBSD 5 is extremely unwise.
