Dear Peter

Thanks again for your reply. As you suggested, I copied src/pcre/.libs/ to a directory in your LD_LIBRARY_PATH such as /usr/local/lib. It still did not work, producing the same error message: /usr/libexec/ Shared object "" not found

So I contacted tech support at my hosting service (verio, vps, free bsd), and they replied thus.

Thanks for contacting technical support.  You can check to see what
libraries are currently in the hints file with this command:

virtual /sbin/ldconfig -r

running this command does show:

81:-lpcre.0 => /usr/local/lib/

so it seems that it should be able to find it.  You can have it re-read it's
normal directories with:

virtual /sbin/ldconfig -R

although it seems like it has already done this (see man ldconfig for
details).  Since I'm not familiar with hypermail (and we don't support it)
I don't know how to verify if it's working or not.  It does appear that the
library paths should be set up correctly.

So, any other suggestions? I have never used cvs, but I suppose I should get
around to learning it (Can you point me to a good learning resource?).

Thanks again,
