Add this to /etc/make.conf:


And then rebuild/reinstall libmilter:

cd /usr/src/lib/libmilter/
make clean
make depend
make install

Note that bug 118824 has already asked for this to be part of the base.
I will likely make that the case for the HEAD and then give it some
testing time before MFC'ing.
