Compilation and installation

After making the local system configuration described above, You should be able to compile and install the system. The script makesendmail is the best approach on most systems:

sh makesendmail
This will use uname(1) to select the correct Makefile for your environment.

You may be able to install using

sh makesendmail install
This should install the binary in /usr/sbin and create links from /usr/bin/newaliases and /usr/bin/mailq to /usr/sbin/sendmail. On 4.4BSD systems it will also format and install man pages.
