sysinst isn't something i know all that much about. i do, however,
know how i want my machines to behave, so i check all sorts of things
and tweak stuff manually all the time. as to what sysinst does, or
how much it should or should not, i can't say.
the problem is that /etc/daily, /etc/security, etc., used to all
"just work" for a default install. since sendmail was upgraded
a while ago that hasn't been the case. something needs to be
done by hand to make this work...
ie, you broke a feature of netbsd ... do you not consider that
to be a problem?
