Log Message:
Update to sendmail 8.14.6:  this is a general bug fix release.
- will look at making recently requested changes in a subsequent commit

8.14.6/8.14.6   2012/12/23
        Fix a regression introduced in 8.14.5: if a server offers
                two AUTH lines, the MTA would not read them after
                STARTTLS has been used and hence SMTP AUTH for
                the client side would fail.  Problem noted by Lena.
        Do not cache hostnames internally in a non case sensitive way
                as that may cause addresses to change from lower case
                to upper case or vice versa. These header modifications
                can cause problems with milters that rely on receiving
                headers in the same way as they are being sent out such
                as a DKIM signing milter.
        If MaxQueueChildren is set then it was possible that new queue
                runners could not be started anymore because an
                internal counter was subject to a race condition.
        If a milter decreases the timeout it waits for a communication
                with the MTA, the MTA might experience a write() timeout.
                In some situations, the resulting error might have been
                ignored.  Problem noted by Werner Wiethege.
                Note: decreasing the communication timeout in a milter
                should not be done without considering the potential
        smfi_setsymlist() now properly sets the list of macros for
                the milter which invoked it, instead of a global
                list for all milters.  Problem reported by
                David Shrimpton of the University of Queensland.
        If Timeout.resolver.retrans is set to a value larger than 20,
                then resolver.retry was temporarily set to 0 for
                gethostbyaddr() lookups. Now it is set to 1 instead.
                Patch from Peter.
        If sendmail could not lock the statistics file due to a system
                error, and sendmail later sends a DSN for a mail that
                triggered such an error, then sendmail tried to access
                memory that was freed before (causing a crash on some
                systems).  Problem reported by Ryan Stone.
        Do not log negative values for size= nor pri= to avoid confusing
                log parsers, instead limit the values to LONG_MAX.
        Account for an API change in newer versions of Cyrus-SASL.
                Patch from Hajimu UMEMOTO from FreeBSD.
        Do not try to resolve link-local addresses for IPv4 (just as it
                is done for IPv6).  Patch from John Beck of Oracle.
        Improve logging of client and server STARTTLS connection failures
                that may be due to incompatible cipher lists by including
                the reason for the failure in a single log line.  Suggested
                by James Carey of Boeing.
                Add support for Darwin 11.x and 12.x (Mac OS X 10.7 and 10.8).
                Add support for SunOS 5.12 (aka Solaris 12). Patch from
                John Beck of Oracle.
