Hi, All,

I have not heard back in response to this query... if no-one can reproduce
the problem, I'm going to release MIMEDefang 2.68.  So please, FreeBSD users,
try out 2.68-BETA-5.



> Someone is reporting problems with MIMEDefang 2.68-BETA-5 on FreeBSD

> He claims the system segfaults when you use embedded perl, and indeed that
> the configure script bombs out when checking for embedded perl:

> checking if we can embed a Perl interpreter in C... yes
> checking if it is safe to destroy and recreate a Perl interpreter... Segmentation fault (core dumped) no

> I am completely unable to reproduce this on any system I have access
> to.  I'd appreciate it if FreeBSD people could test and report back.
> This is the last thing holding up the final release of 2.68.
