Day 4 of 60: Sendmail first build

It's not much of a milestone, but spent five minutes getting Sendmail to build on Solaris 10 with the Sun Studio 11 compiler.

First, make sure that /opt/SUNWspro/bin and /usr/ccs/bin are in your $PATH (for the compiler, linker, and related tools).

Then you need this site.config.m4. The configuration that ships with Sendmail assumes that you're using gcc, with gcc's mechanism for generating dependencies. This just corrects that misconception.

That's enough to get Sendmail built.

% sh Build

doing the right thing. Tomorrow, with a bit of luck, I'll start adding DTrace instrumentation.
