       Well, this is a mailing list for users of the Anomy Mail Sanitizer,
       and not SpamAssassin, but since lots of Anomy users also use
       SpamAssassin, I guess its relevant enough to reply back to the list. .

       Anyway, the problem lies in your path. Try displaying your path with:
       "echo $PATH"

       to see if there are any empty entries, relative entries, or a ".", in
       your path.

       Any of those entries are insecure, and will cause the build to fail.

       The first system I tried to build this on worked, and the second one
       failed, which is where I saw the problem.

       I don't think that your path needs to be permanently changed, but you
       will need to export a new path, for the make to work.

       BTW, while SpamAssassin 2.60 has been out for quite some time, it was
       only recently updated (from 2.55) on CPAN, so you can now get it from
       there, instead of doing everything the hard way.

       run: "perl -MCPAN -eshell"

       and from the CPAN shell, run: "install Mail::SpamAssassin"

       Its much easier than downloading etc., once you have CPAN set up.

       Hey all!
       I've looked through the documention...not sure what
       the deal is with this....I make install with 2.55 and
       everything goes fine...make install with 2.60 and
       here's what I get:
       Insecure directory in $ENV{PATH} while running with -T
       switch at /usr/lib/perl5/ line 92.
       Anyone have any idea why this would happen or where in
       the world I should go for help? I'm using the script. Thanks!
