Because the m4 based Build tree is much better than "make"?
(oh! for configure with sendmail and perl).
Because it's easier to read 4 READMEs (sendmail/README, cf/README
sendmail/TUNING and README) than typing
make WANT_LDAP=1 WANT_MILTER=1 WAIT_SMTPAUTH=1
to get what you want?
sendmail is extra-ordinarily portable. The work of the distro
folks has been to fit it nicely into the OS your running.
Regarding other things:
BIND has been modified to chroot a bit smarter
Apache chroots and has changes that aren't back in the apache tree.
Same for many other things under src/contrib/, er, I mean src/gnu
and various places.
Me, I *LOVE* doing a "cd /usr/ports/mail/mailman; make"
I go to solaris and it's pulling teeth to get the right
packages with the right dependancies from 12 places.
XML anything is so rife with dependancies it's not funny.
Ports makes that go away. A few people focus on 1 way to
do it so that 1000's of people don't have to each do it
themselves. That's a Good Thing.
No longer tech@, I end here.
