Root-oriented program directory Build macro

Programs that should be executed only by root are considered "root-oriented." Among those programs are editmap, makemap, mailstats, and praliases. Such programs are installed in a directory whose name is defined by the confSBINDIR macro. In general, this macro is correctly defined for you in your devtools/OS directory, but if you wish to install one or more of those programs in a different location, you can do so like this:

define(`confSBINDIR', `/opt/mail/sbin')

Here, we have defined the appropriate macros to force installation of the root-oriented programs in the /opt/mail/sbin directory. Naturally, this directory must be properly created ahead of time.

Note that -E DESTDIR (See this section) can be used to relocate all installation directories.
