Dovecot: sha1.h:80: error: static or type qualifiers in abstract declaratorLast Modified: Jul 20, 2016, 4:29 pm
When compiling Dovecot on the older OS's like CentOS 5, it was reported that Dovecot 2.2.25 reliably hits this error:

In file included from guid.c:6:
sha1.h:80: error: static or type qualifiers in abstract declarator
make[4]: *** [guid.lo] Error 1

There are some work-arounds for this issue, but once you get past that, you'll hit more errors with openssl.

For the time being, the recommend solution is to stick with 2.2.24, until dovecot releases a fix for the above, and proper #ifdef's for the openssl issues.

To tell CB to install 2.2.24, follow this guide:
