4.12-2 Solaris buglet

Here's a new check_mailscanner for you to try out.

I haven't gone for a "uname -s" approach yet, as I don't know the exact
string they all produce (e.g. does HP-UX say "HP", "HPUX" or "HP-UX"?).

But using "fgrep >/dev/null" instead of "fgrep -q" seems to work okay, if
not quite as fast as just running "uname -s" once. But I am not remotely
interested in the speed of this script.
