>(Solaris does this with /etc/nsswitch.conf*)

	I'm happy with having sendmail (8.9.x or 8.10.x) in pkgsrc.  8.10.x
	has IPv6 support by default so it would be real nice.  I'll try to
	do this.

	smtpfeed wants sendmail with specific patch, so this is a bit
	separate problem - pkgsrc/mail/smtpfeed needs to build sendmail
	anyways (or make it depend to pkgsrc/mail/wide-patched-sendmail).
