For compiling sendmail milter you need to enable poll, because by default it compiles with select as well. You can verify that its compiled with poll by using (if you are going to build and use a static library)

[vgopal_at_cent63 abacam]$ nm /usr/lib/libmilter.a | grep poll
                 U poll
                 U poll

Steps to do it:

When I compiled the opendkim I did not use any options to libmilter. We are using the one that comes with Oracle(iplanet) messaging.

I will try compiling sendmail and grab libmilter and see if that works

With what version of milter library(libmilter) is opendkim built with? That version may be different than what the MTA uses and should be built with poll instead of select as suggested.

Try rebuilding libmilter to use poll().
