I just did that on my domain host, which runs Linux, without problems. Copied the hypermail executable to my ~/bin directory, and that was that. I just did "./configure" and "make", not "make install". I even run hypermail out of a qmail pipe. Or I did until my domain host broke qmail, but perhaps one day they'll figure out how to fix it again. ;-)

I've also compiled hypermail under cygwin on my PC (of course, everybody has root permissions on a PC), and the only difficulty I've had compiling it with non-GNU compilers on the PC are the strange places some of the compilers put some of the headers and some definitions which they stuck into the wrong header files.

Once you figure out where your compiler system put everything, hypermail compiles and runs fine. So if you're desperate enough....
