mailer.conf: man-page is missing config entries


hoststat and purgestat config entries is missing in mailer.conf manpage documentation

When using other MTAs than sendmail: running hoststat and purgestat commands will return:

mailwrapper: no mapping in /etc/mail/mailer.conf

Also the standard "periodic" "daily run outputs" will return the following annoying warning:

Removing stale entries from sendmail host status cache:
mailwrapper: no mapping in /etc/mail/mailer.conf

The warnings can be silenced by setting/pointing hoststat and purgestat to /usr/bin/true in mailer.conf

But currently these entries are not even documented in the man page for mailer.conf
