Description Will Newton 2001-05-13 20:40:05 EDT
Description of Problem:

The spec file has the comment:
# No I'm not kidding

above the line:

Build-PreReq: sendmail

I just modified the spec to not require sendmail and it built fine with exim,
so I don't see how sendmail can be a build pre-requisite.

Maybe it should require "mailerdaemon" or "/usr/lib/sendmail".
Comment 1 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-06-25 21:41:42 EDT
the build looks for sendmail by name.
If you want, you can have a package which /provides/ sendmail, but I feel safer
with this requirement.
