Dovecot installation - libpam not found
I am having below error when I am trying to install dovecot 1.1.1.

./configure --with-pam
configure:30667: error: Can't build with PAM support: libpam not found

I am using centos 4.6 with postix 2.5.2

Any help will be highly appreciated

Best Regards

Not sure what provides that dependency, but I'd guess you need to install openssl-devel
