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.
