I forgot the prep stage.

I re-made the binary package and its source package with cygport (nice program btw):


I had to cheat a little (see 'src_compile' in .cygport file) because the source has
to be compiled with a library, called 'suexec'. In there are the function overrides
to make 'multi-root' and suid/guid possible.

To make the Procmail and Sendmail packages completely 'clean' I would like to ITP
this library as a new package.
