     In a way, they do, as they provide sample mc files for a wide
variety of operating systems and versions.

     True.  For, personal preferences, as opposed to OS defaults, some
kind of substitution mechanism would be needed.

} for a) I was thinking more along the lines to get compile time support

} at the same time (which is, as far as I know, a build time variable)

     Yes, VARBASE is a build time variable.  But, all the values you
mentioned before, are run time changable.

} concerning mailwrapper, at first sounded ok, but doesn't build on illumos:

     Looks like mailwrapper requires some portability fixes.  It also
will need to grow a, as mailwrapper is supplied with
NetBSD.  We are in a pkgsrc freeze right now, but I will update
sendmail's MESSAGE file to advise the addition of a symlink on systems
that don't have mailwrapper.  I don't want to make extensive changes to
mailwrapper while in the freeze.
