The section in question is probably

#ifdef __unix__
typedef int SOCKET;


typedef struct {
} Socket2;

The typedef of SOCKET to an int assumes that all unix derived systems 
will have the predefine macro __unix__. It would appear the SunOS has 
forgotten its roots and doesn't define __unix__. The reason for the 
SOCKET type in the first place is a cross-platform portability issues 
between Windows BSD socket support and unix/POSIX systems.

Assuming gcc is used try:

	cd com/snert/src/lib
	make predefines

will report the compiler's predefined macros. If you're using a Sun 
supplied C compiler, then there might be no way to find out the 
predefined macro list other than through some man page or use of 

If my theory is correct and __unix__ is not defined by default, then try 
explicitly defining missing macro:

	cd com/snert/src/lib
	CFLAGS='-D__unix__' ./configure (other options here)
	make clean build
	cd ../milter-NAME
	make clean build
	sudo make install

If you can supply me the list of predefines, then I should be able to 
added some clever C macro work around / assertions for SunOS builds.
