We could create a branch on CVS if anyone really does have time for
something new.

I haven't got a suitable setup to test that either. Same goes for the
other SASL related fix.

.PHONY is a GNU make specific feature. We need to make the install target
depend on something that will either be newer than the INSTALL file or
that won't conflict with an existing real file.

How about doing this in Makefile.in:
  -install uninstall:
  +install: all
  +       for subdir in $(SUBDIRS); do \
  +         (cd $$subdir && $(MAKE) $(MAKEDEFS) $@) || exit 1; \
  +       done
Any better suggestions?

I'll commit that one (removing the link instead of using a symlink)

The patch doesn't look sane to me. I don't know enough about it but I
expect that it shouldn't be trying to lock /dev/null in the first place
and if it is doing locking, it is doing it for a reason so removing the
locking may cause another problem.

We should probably remove all the #ifdef MMDFMTS stuff too.

I couldn't reproduce this on the sourceforge compile farm Darwin
machine. Can anyone using MacOS X confirm?
