I saw DMA mentioned recently at the DfBSD Digest, and it just so

desktop users will not see the reports anyway; but it looks like DMA
would fit the bill perfectly as a local-delivery MTA.
That sounds great.  dma will actually also deliver to remote servers 
(including TLS + LOGIN and MD5 authentication).

I have question about the build process, though. I've patched some
files to take care of BSD-isms -- having to define __DECONST in dma.h
and removing the reference to st.st_mtimespec in dma.c -- but I'm
stuck building.
I'm using bmake, and get the following:
I think the best would be if you'd write a generic non-BSD makefile.  It 
is a simple enough build process.
