Sendmail compile errors

I am trying to install the latest version of Sendmail to meet some local vulnerability requirements, and everytime I run the build command, it seems to recognize the appropriate OS and other variables seem correct. However, I get the following results:

Re: Sendmail compile errors

I am just guessing may be you need a "better" C compiler. The bundled CC is supposed to be used only for kernel building.

Install any ANSI complaint C compiler or download gcc from http://hpux.cs.utah.edu/hppd/hpux/

Re: Sendmail compile errors

You have a couple of problems:

The -Ae warning is telling you that you are using the bundled c compiler which is really only intended for building kernels. You really need to use a development compiler (not free) like the ANSI C compiler or download gcc from one of the HP-UX Porting Centre's.

The missing -ldbm is linker shorthand for "libdbm.a" (archive version) or "libdbm.1" or "libdbm.sl" (shared library version). There are standard locations to search for these libraries (typically in /usr/lib/). See if you can find them and move them to there or add -L options to augment the linker's search path. Man cc for details. Finally, you may have the libraries but they are the PA-RISC versions and you need the IA64 versions --- or vice versa.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

Re: Sendmail compile errors

Thanks to both of you. With both replies, I was able to resolve the issue. I had been looking at it all day and was starting to overlook the obvious.

Cheers!
