We had one sendmail config file -- one -- a nice editable text file,
even -- that needed to have one line removed to work on a v4 only
system. It has even been fixed for the shipped default case. No one
has ever suggested that NetBSD should not be able to run on a v4 only
To repeat, NO ONE HAS EVER SUGGESTED WHAT YOU ARE COMPLAINING
ABOUT. All that we argued about for about five minutes was whether one
sendmail config file could assume a GENERIC kernel was in place, and
that isn't even an issue any more.
Please calm down.
