Ah, you're right. It's in the tarball, but doesn't get installed. Stupid
me ;).

This is not ideal either. Maybe serialmail should depend on qmail? It
wouldn't make many people unhappy I imagine. Alternatively setlock
could get it's own package, which would be somewhat silly, but a bit
cleaner I believe.

It might be quite useful to have a simple way of sharing files between
multiple pkgs. Were there any discussions on this topic?
