what does this mean in sendmail?


Starting sendmail: make: *** Warning: File `sendmail.cf' has modification time in the future (2003-11-13 22:58:09 > 2003-11-13 01:08:20.940147)
make: warning: Clock skew detected. Your build may be incomplete.

its really really a lot of time before the [ OK ] shows up... i think around 10-15 minutes...

how can i remove this kind of message and make things go faster

I think it just means that your system clock is slow.
