    From Joacim Melin@2:201/120 to All on Wed Feb 28 18:40:14 2018
    Hi all,

    in our effort to move Fidonet.org to a more stable and accessible infrastructure, we have hit a small snag: Ifmail. Ifmail was written to work as a gateway between Fidonet and the Internet with UUCP as a bridge and the software in all it's greatness does not compile on CentOS 7 on a x86-64 server.

    I'm no C programmer, so we need help here. We get this:

    In file included from lutil.c:10:0: /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.8.5/include/varargs.h:4:2: error: #error "GCC no longer implements <varargs.h>."

    make[1]: Leaving directory `/etc/ifmail/iflib'
    make: *** [all] Error 2

    The code wasn't updated by the original author for 17 years or so, and some modifications was made to it back in march of 2011 by Lars Kellog-Steadman.

    Can anyone help out?
