Subject:   Does anyone know where the unexpected ";" in procmail is?

   Hello everyone

  I have been trying to get the procmail to run but it dies on the build
  with the message below.  It says unepected ";" but it does not give 
  a line number or file name.  I've also tried the 3.11pre1 release with
  the patch and it still will not work.  

  If anyone has any ideas what file the ";" is in please let me know.

  Thank You
  Robert Montgomery
