Suggestion for Exim in ports
I was wondering, if we would like to bring in some changes from the
NetBSD port of exim, they are mainly:
1) Addition of exim to mailer.conf
2) Addition of exim_newaliases shell script to work as newaliases
In addition, I was wondering how about adding, tcp_wrappers to
FLAVORS, with -lwrap added to EXTRALIBS.
I have another idea, which from a security stand make a bit of sense.
I was impressed by the way qmail puts everything in /var/qmail, so I
modified my Makefile for exim, that installs in /var/exim dir hierchy.
Now when we add exim UID with mail GID, we chroot it to /var/exim.
I am already running in such an environment, and if you want, I will
be happy to provide my Makefiles or, if you want, diffs to the port.
What do you think?
