Source-code for tcp-env?

    I'm having some problems with courier-imap and STARTTLS not being enabled.

    The problem is that the env-vars in '/etc/courier-imap/imapd' aren't being expanded and result in:


    being passed to /usr/sbin/imaplogin.

    After a lot of debugging I've discovered part of the reason is a non-standard version of tcp-env (/usr/bin/tcp-env) that takes an undocumented argument "-f file", where 'file' contains environmental variables.

    The service definition in /etc/xinetd.d/courier-imap has this:

    server = /usr/bin/tcp-env
    server_args = -R -f /etc/courier-imap/imapd /usr/sbin/imaplogin /usr/lib/courier-imap/authlib/authpsa /usr/bin/imapd Maildir

    By peeking at the the binary using

    $ hexdump -C /usr/bin/tcp-env

    I can see the additional argument: "rRt:f:.PROTO."

    I've checked the qmail source, and the Plesk patches including patch-z04-tcp-env.

    Where can I find the source-code for the modified tcp-env ?
