Hello everyone,

I've been hacking away at Sendmail for the past couple days, trying to learn it and set it up. Now, im using FreeBSD 4.9 and it comes with 8.12.9p2 by default.

I've been reading through the "Bat Book" and i've been able to figure out a few things , like generating a updated sendmail.cf using the m4 processor. Which is nice, but now im trying to figure out a few other things.

One thing I want to build into sendmail is smtp-auth, which requires cyrus-sasl. I went ahead and installed cyrus-sasl.
After doing some research, I found out that I have to rebuild sendmail in order to get the sasl part built in.

Sounds easy enough, but I'm confused on a few parts.

Basically, it says that you need to create a .m4 file and then add the specifics of what you need. Once you do that, you are supposed to run the ./Build script. Well, im gathering that you need to be in directory in order to use the ./Build script, which is simple enough if you have downloaded the source. However, since I have not downloaded the source and im using the version that came with FreeBSD, I am not sure where exactly it is that I can find this ./Build script in order to rebuild sendmail. I know there is the directory /usr/share/sendmail that contains many subdirectories with information. But im a little confused on how i'm supposed to rebuild sendmail here.

Anyone wanna point me in the right direction?

I appreciate it.
