sendmail


Any of you guys have trouble when following the instructions in BLFS for installing sendmail? It compiles fine and all that, but when I do the newaliases command ( sendmail -v -bi or something ), I get :

Cannot rebuild aliases: no database format defined
Cannot create database for alias file /etc/mail/aliases

Any of you cracked this problem yet?

I compiled it again with "define('confMAPDEF','-DNEWB')
" in the devtools/site/site.config.m4 and still no luck. :-(

just in case anybody runs into this problem, here's what happened:

I had compiled db in /usr/local, and when sendmail got built, it didn't find it. I compiled db again in /usr and it all works fine now
