Re: pkgsrc/mail/sendmail anomalies

I think both the sendmail rc.d scripts are broken. They should not use 
/usr/sbin/ and should not use /etc/mail/, It is a convenience for some, 
but it is not the pkgsrc way.  As an example, see alternative exim's 
rc.d script:



Or pkgsrc postfix's rc.d script:

: ${required_files=`@PREFIX@/sbin/postconf -h config_directory`/}

(Also note that on various pkgsrc systems, /usr/sbin/sendmail is not the 
mailwrapper. But may be some sendmail that the pkgsrc user doesn't want 
to use -- that is why they installed from pkgsrc.)
