Thank you for your reply and suggestions.

When I run 'milter-report -h' I get no output at all.

When I run 'milter-report > milter-report.cf' I also get no output. No 
error message. Nothing.

When I run 'milter-report -restart verbose=warn,info,db ; tail -f  
/var/log/maillog' I get output from the maillog, but nothing about 

All the above commands run as root.

When I built LibSnert and Milter-report I saw no build errors or 
dependency problems. Why would I not get any output from milter-report -h?
