Hi Julian

I'm in the process of updating my gentoo ebuild for 4.76.24, and note 
that there's one new file in the tarball: bin/getPERLLIB.
Is this script actually used by MailScanner, or is it just there as a 
testing tool? (In other words, do I actually need to have the ebuild 
install it?)

Also, I made the following request just before you went stable with 
4.76, but you didn't reply on the list at the time and I assume it got 
lost in the noise...

Any chance of changing this for a future release?
