Sorry, this was indeed my mistake the whole time. I should have checked the config.log carefully.

The TL;DR is that there was a nasty carriage-return-contaminated file in my /etc/

(Side note: The file (called — what a misnomer) originated from a software package for an ATTO SAS controller — probably the worst choice ever, I got rid of ATTO long ago, but still keep finding its mess.)

The problem was not immediately obvious and almost everything worked, except for this configure script that concatenates files from /etc/ into one #defined string and leaves the carriage-returns in place.

That^ fails to build, presumably — and it is in the testing program for /usr/include/ltdl.h. This causes configure to assume (and report) that ltdl.h is absent (which is not the case).

Adding to the confusion, Courier had this exact error message with libltdl a few years ago, but from a completely different cause. So I jumped into an incorrect conclusion that this would be a Courier build problem.

@andrej, not taking sides, but just wish to say this package compiles and works fine on my server (which AFAIK is standard Arch) with libtool 2.4.7. My configure output differs slightly from yours (lines 105,112-120,122-124,130-133) though whether this is significant I don't know.

@andrej, this package is still working, never stopped working, if you have issues, is your environment/system.

Ping. This is still utterly broken; it won’t build.

It may work as long as the courier-mta version stays compatible with the courier-authlib version, but addressing this sooner rather than later would be very helpful no matter what.

This won't build and claims that ltdl.h is unavailable. (This is not true, libtool is installed and /usr/include/ltdl.h exists.)

configure: error: Unable to find ltdl.h. Please install Libtool's ltdl library

Here's the full configure output.

It is unclear to me whether the problem is in the update to libtool 2.4.7 from 2022-03-22 or (already) the update of this package to 0.71.4…

I'm getting a missing library ""
configure: error: --with-authmysql specified but no
I have mariadb installed, I tried to link to but it doesn't seem to work ?

@andrej, Added restart to authdaemond.

As I mentioned in this comment, courier-mta supports (what systemd means by) reload (i.e., basically a SIGHUP), but calls it (quite oddly) reset. For authdaemond I’ve added a configuration drop-in, /etc/systemd/system/authdaemond.service.d/restart.conf, to get that functionality:

ExecReload=/usr/bin/authdaemond restart

It would be nice to have this^^^ in the packaged unit file.

@lilmike, Fixed with the same version to avoid other users to upgrade.

I get the following error when building from a chroot (missing dependancy/makedepend?)

error: Cannot find pathname to ps
