+This file is part of the mailfromd package.
+This document describes the actions needed to build the pre-release
+or CVS version of the package. See end of file for copying conditions.
+* Introduction
+This is a *pre-release* version, and not ready for production use yet.
+Please send comments and problem reports to <>.
+If you have taken the sources from CVS you will need the following
+packages to build GNU tar. I don't make any extra effort to accommodate
+older versions of these packages, so please make sure that you have the
+latest stable version.
+- Automake <>
+- Autoconf <>
+- Bison <>
+- Flex <>
+- Gettext <>
+- Gnulib <>
+- M4 <>
+* Checking Out the Sources
+The following instructions apply if you wish to obtain sources from
+the CVS repository:
+To checkout the source tree from CVS, issue the following command:
+ cvs -d co mailfromd
+ This will give you read-only access. If you think you need write access,
+contact the mailing list or the author.
+* Building
+1. Change to the source tree directory
+ cd mailfromd
+2. Populate the source tree with the necessary files from Gnulib. Run:
+ gnulib-tool --import argp obstack snprintf strtok_r
+(make sure gnulib-tool is in your path or supply its full file name).
+3. Link or copy src/daemon.c to lib:
+ ln src/daemon.c lib/
+4. Create the configuration framework:
+ autoreconf -i -f -s
+5. Configure and build the package as described in the documentation. See
