I introduced easier way to do it, than the old one:
The ./configure which supports it is now in the CVS.

Because all the world does not have e.g. RPM-like systems
tracking installed files, I had to cook up some way to do
tracking of configuration files, and if they get modified
by the user at some point. "post-install -MD5" will do
the final file installations into proper places, and create
those MD5 checksum files.
Of course running post-install in e.g. preparation for RPM
package is semi-insane, and perhaps a better place is really
to do that in RPM post-installation phase.

"proto/db/kill-headers" has some examples.
The router will remove headers which names match to given
string -- return-path as an example.
One might consider that it isn't nice to kill some of those
headers, unless your local MTA acts as submission receiver,
but detecting that is a bit difficult...
(As opposed to "mere SMTP relay" along the MX path.)

Hmm.. Don't know how/why, have to check.
You mean for <zmailer.h> file ?

Not really. Sometimes the system runs compilation of
the same file multiple times in parallel -- "make -j 32",
or some such obscene..

No. But Z isn't using any suid-root programs, its
servers just must be started as root.
