I've attached to this ticket the patches that are currently applied in the spamass-milter package in Fedora, at least the ones that are worthy of consideration for being included in a future upstream release.

I believe Debian ships spamass-milter with a very similar set of patches.

Building the milter with recent gcc versions results in many warnings being issued, mainly about deprecated
conversions from string constants to char *. Attached patch fixes these.
