Dave's advice fixed the error with _strerror.  However, now I get the
following error:

   ----- The following addresses had delivery problems -----
"|/usr/local/majordomo/wrapper majordomo"  (unrecoverable error)
    (expanded from: <majordomo>)

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
Out of memory!
554 "|/usr/local/majordomo/wrapper majordomo"... unknown mailer error 1

What happens is that perl is launched and runs until it consumes all my
memory (including swap).  Does anyone have any other clues?

Thanks for the responses so far and thanks in advance for any new leads.

Your /usr/lib/ library doesn't have strerror() in it and
majordomo (or perl or wrapper) needs it.  I've only seen this happen
with modified versions on libc with DNS support (like resolv+).  The
fix is to build a new library using resolv+.  You'll need to modify
the Makefile to tell it to include strerror--it doesn't do it by
