90 <note>
91 <para>This version of <application>Mutt</application> is a development
92 release. The BLFS staff has determined that it provides a stable
93 program and fixes two issues in the current stable version of
94 <application>Mutt</application>: a segmentation fault that occurs under
95 certain conditions and a compilation problem when building with
96 <application>GCC-&gcc-version;</application>. To find the current
97 stable release, please refer to the
98 <ulink url="http://www.mutt.org/">Mutt home page</ulink>.</para>

101 <caution>
102 <para>If you choose to link <application>Mutt</application> against
103 <xref linkend="gnutls"/>,
104 you won't have SSL client certificate support. Specifically the
105 <envar>ssl_client_cert</envar> configuration variable is recognized
106 as invalid. That means you will lose the ability to use
107 <command>mutt</command> via SMTP over TLS or in the case when
108 a client certification is required for authentication on an IMAP server.
109 For these reasons it is recommended to link <application>Mutt</application>
110 against <xref linkend="openssl"/> if you want SSL/TLS support.</para>
111 </caution>
112
113 <para><application>Mutt</application> requires a group named
114 <systemitem class="groupname">mail</systemitem>. You can
115 add this group, if it does not exist, with this command:</para>
116
117<screen role="root"><userinput>groupadd -g 34 mail</userinput></screen>
118
119 <para>If you did not install an MTA, such as <xref linkend="postfix"/> or
120 <xref linkend="sendmail"/>, you need to modify the ownership of
121 <filename class="directory">/var/mail</filename> with this command:</para>
122
123<screen role="root"><userinput>chgrp -v mail /var/mail</userinput></screen>
124
125 <para>Install <application>Mutt</application> by running the following
126 commands:</para>
127
128<screen><userinput>./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
129 --with-docdir=/usr/share/doc/mutt-&mutt-version; \
130 --enable-pop --enable-imap \
131 --enable-hcache --without-qdbm \
132 --without-gdbm --with-bdb &amp;&amp;
133make</userinput></screen>
134
135 <para>If you have the necessary dependencies installed and would like
136 to rebuild the HTML documentation, issue the following commands:</para>
137
138<screen><userinput>make -C doc clean &amp;&amp;
139make -C doc</userinput></screen>
140
141 <para>To generate the PDF manual with <xref linkend="jadetex"/>, run
142 the following command:</para>
143
144<screen><userinput>make -C doc manual.pdf</userinput></screen>
145
146 <para>This package does not come with a test suite.</para>
147

149
150<screen role='root'><userinput>make install</userinput></screen>
151
152 <para>If you generated the PDF manual, install it and the source TeX
153 file by issuing the following command as the
154 <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user:</para>
155
156<screen role='root'><userinput>install -v -m644 doc/manual.{pdf,tex} \

192 be needed for POP3 or IMAP. However, it is needed for SMTP
