fyi - patch isn't going to apply unless the PORTREVISION line is updated first.

Committed, thanks.
Comment 4 Baptiste Daroussin freebsd_committer 2014-08-04 09:59:25 UTC
I reopen this one as I really think adding an options for ports sendmail is a regression rather than an improvement.

base sendmail (/usr/sbin/sendmail) is not sendmail it is a wrapper on top of mailer.conf meaning that it allows to use any MTA, include ports version of sendmail while this options is hardcoding ports version.

I think the options should be removed as it brings nothing and might confuse users.
Comment 5 Kurt Jaeger freebsd_committer 2014-08-04 10:52:07 UTC
As you can see, there's no agreement on the ports SENDMAIL option.

Why does the mail/heirloom-mailx port need a seperate option if the
user can adapt /etc/mail/mailer.conf so that it's transparent to the
port ?

If you have a good reason for this, please explain ? If not, please
ACK removal of this option.

I've tried to think of a way to put a positive spin on this, but I've failed miserably!

Yeah, Bapt is correct, and I've been an idiot!

Basically, as I always used to run base sendmail, about 1000 years ago, I started building with WITHOUT_MAILWRAPPER in src.conf.

Fast forward to now, and I totally forgot the mailwrapper sub-system existed...

*cough* dunno what else to say, but good catch Bapt, and I promise to be more careful in the future!

So yea,h, please reverse the change, and try to ignore the embarrassed humble idiot attempting to leave the room unnoticed by the back door!

Sorry for the 'spam' and the extra work I've created for you.
