I had a hell of a time getting Majordomo to work initially on AIX.
Eventually with coaching from Randy Bush, I created some utilities
to reveal what UID and GID were used by sendmail. I enclose them
later. Could Majordomo test and reveal the difficulty encountered
with wrong permissions instead of just trying 600 times?
Now, trying to set up on a new AIX machine, I followed instructions
as well as I could. I revised the Makefile and the majordomo.cf
file, and put a copy of the latter in /etc. The make worked just
the way I think it should but the make install failed.
Actually, I think it failed because it was already done. Doesn't
this suggest a modification that accepts success more gracefully?

The error code from the last failed command is 1.
[I shrank the indents, and lost the end of the cp message.]
