This is a really strange error. I'm wondering if it is a gcc optimization bug I've encountered. Probably something in hypermail's config but we are working that. I've opened up access to 2b26 with no optimization turned on in the build. It compiles on RH6 here that way. If I turn on optimizer flags I get errors like the above... sigh. I have gotten it to compile on the test systems here over lunch (Solaris, FreeBSD, RedHat and Windows98). We are going to be working to find out what the issues are on the linux side later tonight. Until then please give it a try on your systems.
