hi sirs,

i hvae just noticed that if  /usr/src/contrib/sendmail/cf/mailer/local.m4 has
a line that says

ifdef(`LOCAL_MAILER_PATH',, `define(`LOCAL_MAILER_PATH', /bin/mail)')

will result in error at boot time.  i simply change that line to

ifdef(`LOCAL_MAILER_PATH',, `define(`LOCAL_MAILER_PATH', /usr/bin/mail)')

and error disappears after doing make install at /etc/mail.  but i do not
know of any side effects will happen.  my system is

[firak] /usr/src/contrib/sendmail/cf/mailer # uname -a

with best regards,
