'confLN'' ''''


Program to link files Build macro

As part of installing the sendmail suite of programs, some symbolic links have to be established. The program to create those symbolic links is called ln(1).

If you prefer to use a different program to create symbolic links, you can do so by defining, as shown here, a new program to use:

define(`confLN', `/usr/local/bin/ln')

Before specifying a new program, however, be sure that its command-line arguments (see the next section) are compatible with those used by the default program.

Prior to V8.12.5, this install-macro could be used only for libmilter, but not for the confLINKS programs (confLINKS). This has been fixed as of V8.12.6, and this install-macro can be used for all the programs.
