1)  I don't develop, so I don't have any autoconf code to offer.  Sendmail doesn't use autoconf either.

2)  I don't see that as unusual.  On my system, I happen to have the library that has the REAL routine instead of the dummy stub that only performs a return (which is all that the libmilter version does - when the real routine is not present).  Relying on libmilter's hack is the problem.

The function is a DNS-related call, so why shouldn't it be in libbind?  Why should it be expected to be in libmilter?
