wide patch adds IPv6 support and more things (i vaguely remember
that this is some part in LMTP support). smtpfeed wants the "more
things" part from wide patch. i'll make "sendmail893", which is
8.9.3 + wide patch.

yes, sendmail supports IPv6 in 8.10.0 and beyond. 8.10.0 has some
issue in backward compatibility (enables IPv6 listening socket even if
we use old cf file). 8.11.0 is better in this aspect.
