objformat was created at around FreeBSD 3.0 as a temporary tool to
handle the a.out to ELF transition and has been obsolete for nearly 8
years.  Unfortunately, it's continued presence misled third-party

The correct fix is to patch the configure script to not need objformat.

Note that as others have suggested, Apache 1.3 is now a legacy
version.  Even if you don't move to Apache 2.2 now, I suggest your
future plans include provision for migration off Apache 1.3.  To quote
the Apache website: "We strongly recommend that users of all earlier
versions, including 1.3 family release, upgrade to to the current 2.2
version as soon as possible."

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