Hi folks,

I created new ssmtp packages, version 2.64-8.  This version introduces
the new mechanism to install itself as sendmail via "alternatives", the
same technique as used on Fedora Linux to handle multiple alternative
MTAs.  This is done in the ssmtp-config script.

This method will in future be used by other MTAs as well.

NOTE: If you already have ssmtp installed and configured, there's a
good chance you already have an /usr/sbin/sendmail symlink.  Unless
you reconfigure, this symlink is not a problem, but *if* you reconfigure,
you might better remove the old /usr/sbin/sendmail symlink to avoid
collisions with the "alternatives" mechanism.
