What version of LibSnert are you linked with? Please make sure its 1.52.

HELO monlib.vic.gov.au

Is not a FQDN as far as I can tell, though this should not be an issue 
as far as I can tell in the spf.c code.

The current version does support PTR records. My spf CLI (in LibSnert) 

$ ./spf -v -h monlib.vic.gov.au monlib.vic.gov.au
monlib.vic.gov.au Pass

What was the MAIL argument? I'll look further into this once I wake up 
to see if there is a difference in behaviour between the CLI and the milter.
