Hi Maarten,

Well, strictly speaking it is not an error, it is a GNU dependency:
the version 2.0 extensively used asprintf, which is a GNU extension
and is therefore absent in many non-GNU libc implementations. Since
then, we have abandoned this practice and now latest Mailutils snapshots
are known to succesfully build on several non-GNU architectures. I'd
suggest to try the latest snapshot, which is available at anonymous[1]:


Give it a try, and let me know if you experience any problems.


[1] The corresponding GPG detached signature is available at the same server
under the name mailutils-latest.tar.bz2.sig. You can use it to verify that
the tarball is intact, by running gpg --verify
mailutils-latest.tar.bz2.sig. The public key can be obtained by the
following command:

    gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 55D0C732
