	Solaris 2.6 ?  Early-Access beta ?
	I have to ask an account at an Sol2.6EA machine we
	have at my work..  I didn't think there was any
	high priority at getting the ZMailer running in it :)

	Anyway, the autoconf(ig) isn't very good at finding
	things automatically when they are in abnormal positions.
	"abnormal" in this context is  /usr/local/  instead
	of /usr/ ...    How many alternate trees should be
	supported automatically, and when to add one more
	or some such ?

	Yes, there has been talk about it in the bind-workders list.
