What happens if I don't 'install'? Do the recompiled execuatbles simply
remain in the build directory? If so, can I then copy them over to
/usr/local/mailman/[bin|contrib|cron]? Reason I ask is that a simple
recompile wasn't exactly addressed in the UPGRADE text, although I did
get that I should shut things down while redoing the binaries.
Or are there configuration files that will have changed, etc? All I
seem to need to do is reconfigure with " --with-mail-gid=daemon" in
order to satisfy Sendmail, or so says the complaint in /var/log/maillog
when I started 'mailmanctl'. There were three messages in
/var/spool/mail/mailman that I'd sent to verify that the incoming mail
got to where it needed to be. Each one elicited the complaint and they
were not 'bounced'.
In the end, I could simply blow it all away and start over, but that
sounds a bit too much like the necessaries for a popular operating
Thanks for responding,
