When I first got hold of Majordomo I had these same errors with Linux 
1.2.13 and I fixed them by adding <string.h> to the includes because line 
65 references the strchr() function.  Line 99 (100 after the <string.h> 
addition) then is a char definition as follows:

 char setgroups_used = "setgroups_was_included";

which obviously is incorrect because it should use a char *, not just a 
char.  I changed that, and presto I was off.

Hope this helps.
