Sure, you can add me as co-maintainer.

I'll incorporate the patch, thanks for reporting.

Come to think of it, would you like to co-maintain?

I dug a bit further and found that the problem is that libesmtp is missing libesmtp-config. I managed to get esmtp to compile by replacing it with pkg-config (inspired by debian patches). I have no idea if it still works as I do not longer use it.

This patch will have to be added to prepare followed by a call to autoconf.
