I eventually got it working, by doing a little fiddling. It seems that
a much earlier install of 2.0 that I did was somehow broken. Exactly
how, I'm not sure, but I believe now that the installer does produce a
working system from a fresh install. I basically wiped everything out
and then ran postinstall and it seems to work. I wasn't thrilled about
running sendmail 24/7, but local mail is being delivered and it seems to
only be listening on localhost.
I don't think install=/ is supposed to install anything in /etc, thats
not broken, its intentional. postinstall/etcupdate is responsible for
that I think.
