it's linker weirdness.  even programs that don't need libwrap get
linked to libwrap and then fail to start because they can't satisfy
libwrap's needs.

use this instead:

	define(`conf_sendmail_ENVDEF', `-DTCPWRAPPERS')
	define(`conf_sendmail_LIBS', `-lwrap')

which means that only sendmail will get built with libwrap.
