Hi

Im seeing this problem on a centos 5.5 installation.

Its happened between version 2.67 and 2.68 as my script works ok with 
2.67 but with 2.68 I get

Sep 27 14:28:58 adelaide mimedefang-multiplexor[20336]: Starting slave 0 
(pid 20359) (1 running): Bringing slaves up to minSlaves (2)
Sep 27 14:28:58 adelaide mimedefang-multiplexor[20336]: Slave 0 stderr: 
Usage: Unix::Syslog::LOG_FAC(p) at (eval 119) line 1.
Sep 27 14:28:58 adelaide mimedefang-multiplexor[20336]: Reap: slave 0 
(pid 20359) exited normally with status 1 (SLAVE DIED UNEXPECTEDLY)

Looking at the change log I can see

Detect Sys::Syslog vs. Unix::Syslog at run-time rather than when running 
./configure.

I'm not sure where to go from here, any tips? output of mimedefang.pl 
--feaures for 2.67 and the error I get when trying to do it on 2.68
