Re: make upgrade overwrites /etc/mail/mailer.conf

:>    The utility that deals with it is /usr/src/usr.sbin/mailwrapper.
:Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought we were talking about modifying
:getservent() and friends...? After all, I don't have problems with
:mailer.conf getting overridden by a make upgrade, but /etc/services
:being reset to its default state. Anyway, if it's somehow related,
:I'll take a look at mailwrapper, too.
:Hm, hm

    I was thinking about the whole enchilada but the problem is
    similar (except getservent() needs to be fixed in libc).

    getservbyname() and getservbyport() could use a simple 'check
    /etc/services first then check /etc/defaults/services' scheme.
    In getservent()'s case it would have to merge the two files
    together (maybe on the fly if we were to require that the entries
    be sorted by port) to produce a single coherent result.
