i found the above "LMTP support" patch for 8.10.1. i'll make it
work for 8.11.0 and integrate into pkgsrc/mail/sendmail (8.11.0),
and remove the need for pkgsrc/mail/sendmail893.

unfortunately, 8.11.0 does not integrate the "LMTP support" part
from the wide patch. so we need "8.11.0 + wide patch" or
"8.9.3 + wide patch" for smtpfeed to work.
IPv6 support better LMTP support for smtpfeed
