   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..

	?   Oh.   max-error-recipients  -- a typo ?

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