	I'd like to upgrade my sendmail version in advance of
upgrading to the next release of the OS. I was wondering if I
cvsup the version of the OS I want, then do :

# cd /usr/src/lib/libsm
# make obj && make depend && make
# cd /usr/src/lib/libsmutil
# make obj && make depend && make
# cd /usr/src/usr.sbin/sendmail
# make obj && make depend && make && make install

	if that would be enough? Later on, when I can
afford to reboot the machine, I'll go through the :

# 1.  `cd /usr/src'       (or to the directory containing your source tree).
# 2.  `make buildworld'
# 3.  `make buildkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE'     (default is GENERIC).
# 4.  `make installkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE'   (default is GENERIC).
# 5.  `reboot'        (in single user mode: boot -s from the loader prompt).
# 6.  `mergemaster -p'
# 7.  `make installworld'
# 8.  `mergemaster'
# 9.  `reboot'


	I don't want to build out of ports because it is set up not to
override the base install.

		Thanks, Tuc
