AFAIK pan was also removed from core, which is too bad because I liked
it - though I hardly ever used it.

If there is other software that can use libesmtp that either was in core
or otherwise should be in extras, then it should be its own package. 

Anyway - imho the most recent libesmtp from core should be checked to
into extras, and gcc4 patched. I think (other than patch) all the spec
file would need is a small change to meet extras guidelines - it uses
BuildPreReq and I think extras wants BuildRequires.
