I downloaded 2.1.0 from the website and untarred it. While making it, I got the same compiler error you mentioned earlier this month, only on a different line. Here's the ouptut of make:

make[1]: Entering directory `/tmp/hypermail-2.1.0/src'

gcc  -c -g -O2  base64.c
gcc  -c -g -O2  date.c

parse.c:2466: for each function it appears in.)
make[1]: *** [parse.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/hypermail-2.1.0/src' make: *** [hypermail] Error 2

Should I get a copy from sourceforge instead? Or can somebody tell me how to easily fix this?

Thanks again.
