- In the man page, change references to "three config files" to "two config
files" now that virtualtable is gone.
- Sending an email using "mail" as root throws this error, which appears to
be coming from dma:
send-mail: cannot drop root privileges: unknown error:

It cannot drop root privileges because you have no "mail" user. So you can either add one, or change #define DMA_ROOT_USER "mail" in libexec/dma/dma.h to use "mailnull", which is an user we have for sendmail.
Swildner seemed to think we should change drop group to mailnull as well. We have both mail and mailnull groups.
