If the aegis configure script is claiming that strverscmp() exists when
it doesn't then that is a bug in the configure script and nothing to
do with FreeBSD.

I have spent most of the past week fighting broken configure scripts

an MTA that is either RFC2821-compliant or matches their claimed behaviour.
