[Mimedefang] negotiate error: version 13 not 2?

Hi

That reminds me:

On my system doing a 'sh Build install' in the
sendmail-8.12.2/libmilter source directory installs mfapi.h and
mfdef.h in /usr/include but mimedefang.c includes libmilter/mfapi.h.
I ran into a problem where I had old versions of mfapi.h and 
mfdef.h in /usr/include/libmilter and new versions in /usr/include
and mimedefang picked up the old include files. I think mimedefang.c
should be changed to include just mfapi.h so that it will work with
the standard sendmail 8.12.2 installation.

Regards

Nick
