Now we may have a Sendmail package that is working better. It's still
experimental of course but at least a new install is clean and it
starts without a hitch. My advise is still to test it on a
non-production server.

Things to consider with the new package:

* This is Sendmail 8.14.5
* Configuration will be migrated from /opt/csw/etc/mail to
/etc/opt/csw/mail. If you're upgrading be careful to look what files
you need, not included files will not be migrated, e.g. access and
mailertable. You will have to do those yourself.
* Spool queues are now by default in /var/opt/csw/spool
* Includes deactivate/reactivate scripts instead of messing with
built-in Sendmail at install

A special note if you want to use it with MailScanner is that the two
service scripts there may need some updates.
