what does it mean if i put a dnl in front of the line define('confAUTO_REBUILD') in file?

I do not understand it. When i put dnl in front of it everything is ok. If i do not put dnl in front of it then i get a warning.

AFAIK, has no effect on the system unless you use it to rebuild the (and restart sendmail), therefore I presume that is what you have done, and that the error results from sendmail. Or perhaps it is from m4. I am not psychic.

dnl is the comment indicator for If you a a dnl in front of the line define('confAUTO_REBUILD') in the file, it means that the feature defined by confAUTO_REBUILD will not be used by sendmail.
