The tls.c compilation errors are a result of changes in OpenSSL 1.1. I found some info on this as well as a patch from Debian here:

I used the above as basis for a patch and modified the site configuration for building sendmail. Actually put the desired build features in devtools/Site/site.config.m4 rather than modifying devtools/OS/Linux.

You can find my changes here

Getting the exact same error and output as @TaurohtaR
The build completes with an error 1 and sendmail doesn't get created

Anyone have a workaround?

TaurohtaR commented on 2017-07-02 10:44

compilation fails for me

/usr/include/openssl/rsa.h:193:1: note: declared here
DEPRECATEDIN_0_9_8(RSA *RSA_generate_key(int bits, unsigned long e, void
tls.c: In function ‘x509_verify_cb’:
tls.c:1974:10: error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type ‘X509_STORE_CTX {aka struct x509_store_ctx_st}’
if (ctx->error == X509_V_ERR_UNABLE_TO_GET_CRL)

that leads to

The install stalls while trying to find/download

It seems this is a dead link.

sendmail binary builds fine from the original tarball so something must be wrong with your PKGBUILD e.g. the echo "APPENDDEF... options

The package is missing the main program binary after build:

yaourt -S --aur-url sendmail
chown: cannot access ‘/usr/bin/sendmail’: No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access ‘/usr/bin/sendmail’: No such file or directory
error: command failed to execute correctly

Here is the problem:

cd sendmail/
daemon.o: In function `anynet_ntop':
daemon.c:(.text+0x1434): undefined reference to `sm_inet6_ntop'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
Makefile:443: recipe for target 'sendmail' failed
make: *** [sendmail] Error 1

Curl fails to connect the FTP server. BTW, the current version is 8.15.1.

This conflicts with msmtp-mta. Both provide /usr/bin/sendmail

amish commented on 2014-05-05 05:19

When you stop sendmail, sm-client does not stop and continues to run.

To solve this please add this in [Unit] section of sm-client.service
