Log Message:
Added clamsmtpd_maxwait (default is 600 seconds). This makes it possible
to define how long clamsmtpd should wait for clamd.


Our server (NetBSD/amd64 4.0_BETA2) is a 2.33 GHz dual-core Intel Xeon with 4 GB RAM and disks connected to a hardware RAID controller so it should be fast enough for this kind of stuff. Yesterday I saw clamd taking it nice-and-slow, it took almost 7 minutes(!) until the /tmp/clamd socket appeared. "DNS", you might say... No, name resolution was working just fine.

So, my conclusion is that having a long default is better than having a system which might not have a working SMTP setup after reboot. Feel free to use a smaller/larger value in /etc/rc.conf.
