I've found next problems in INN 2.3.3:
char *p is not freed after use, this is memory leak!
from 2.3.3 is using vsnprintf() which is not
implemented on digital unix osf4 (althrough osf5.1 Tru64 does vsnprintf)
2) using --with-perl and gcc causing configure script to pass
perl ccopts "-fprm d -ieee -std" to gcc so make fails due to gcc
errors. This problem is on digital unix platform, tru64 - osf4,osf5.1
Had to change configure.in to remove these params if gcc is used:
> if test x"$GCC" = xyes ; then
> for i in "-fprm d" -ieee -std ; do
> inn_perl_core_flags=`echo "$inn_perl_core_flags" | sed "s/ $i//"`
3) in nnrpd/article.c:
is returning -1, errno==22 "bad arguments" on digital unix.
This is not portable there and needs to be replaced with usleep().
So there should be a script in configure.in to produce portable usleep()
or current form of select if usleep() is not exists on current
