patch is part of base-devel and base-devel is (assumed) prerequisite for building AUR packages. Does sendmail itself use patch anywhere at runtime? I doubt it.

See note:

Can confirm, package is missing binaries

sendmail.service: Executable /usr/bin/newaliases missing, skipping: No such file or directory

sendmail.service: Failed at step EXEC spawning /usr/sbin/sendmail: No such file or directory

/usr/bin/sendmail file is missing after install

UPD: seems like all files from bin are missing after installation

The tls.c compilation errors are a result of changes in OpenSSL 1.1. I found some info on this as well as a patch from Debian here:

I used the above as basis for a patch and modified the site configuration for building sendmail. Actually put the desired build features in devtools/Site/site.config.m4 rather than modifying devtools/OS/Linux.

You can find my changes here

Getting the exact same error and output as @TaurohtaR
The build completes with an error 1 and sendmail doesn't get created

Anyone have a workaround?

TaurohtaR commented on 2017-07-02 10:44

compilation fails for me

/usr/include/openssl/rsa.h:193:1: note: declared here
DEPRECATEDIN_0_9_8(RSA *RSA_generate_key(int bits, unsigned long e, void
tls.c: In function ‘x509_verify_cb’:
tls.c:1974:10: error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type ‘X509_STORE_CTX {aka struct x509_store_ctx_st}’
if (ctx->error == X509_V_ERR_UNABLE_TO_GET_CRL)

that leads to

The install stalls while trying to find/download

It seems this is a dead link.
