Re: Aliases problem with zmailer-2.99.49p[89]

	The automatic testing of files per autoconfigured
	formats was changed recently, and it really requires
	that you have ALL of the MAILSHARE/cf/ files from
	the same version -- PLUS that your  /etc/zmailer.conf
	file has DB* entries according to the new  zmailer.Config

	If your  router.cf  has some localizations, you will
	most likely survive without updateing it too.
	(You can remove the 'toplevels=' entry, though, it is
	 now in  standard.cf  file.)

	I am now far away from office, and I really can't spend
	time on speculating how your system is able to work at all,
	as you are indicating below.  I have to also ponder about
	the NDBM  dir_fno() / pag_fno()  functions.
	Some NDBM lookalikes have one, but not both...

	It is entirely possible, and for a deep analysis I would propably
	need to see at least your  config.log file.  ( + config.h !)
