    87 <application>Exim</application>'s configuration options are compiled in.
    88 This command specifies the minimum set of options,
    89 <parameter>BIN_DIRECTORY</parameter>, <parameter>CONFIGURE_FILE</parameter>
    90 and <parameter>EXIM_USER</parameter>. Additionally, building the
    91 <application>Exim</application> monitor program is deferred, as it
    92 requires <application>X</application> Window System support, by commenting
    93 out the <parameter>EXIM_MONITOR</parameter> line in the
    94 <filename>Makefile</filename>.</para>
    95 
    96 <para><command>ln -s exim /usr/sbin/sendmail</command>:
    97 Creates a link to <command>sendmail</command> for applications which need
    98 it. <application>Exim</application> will
    99 accept most <application>Sendmail</application> command-line options.</para>
     94<para><command>sed -e ... > Local/Makefile</command>: Most of
     95<application>Exim</application>'s configuration options are compiled in using
     96the directives in <filename>Local/Makefile</filename> which is created from
     97the <filename>src/EDITME</filename> file. This command specifies the minimum
     98set of options. Descriptions for the options are listed below.</para>
     99
     100<para><parameter>BIN_DIRECTORY=/usr/sbin</parameter>: This installs all of
     101<application>Exim</application>'s binaries and scripts in
     102<filename class='directory'>/usr/sbin</filename>.</para>
     103
     104<para><parameter>CONFIGURE_FILE=/etc/exim.conf</parameter>: This installs
     105<application>Exim</application>'s main configuration file in
     106<filename class='directory'>/etc</filename>.</para>
     107
     108<para><parameter>EXIM_USER=exim</parameter>: This tells
     109<application>Exim</application> that after the daemon no longer needs root
     110privileges, the process hands off the daemon to the exim user.</para>
     111
     112<para><parameter>#EXIM_MONITOR</parameter>: This defers building the
     113<application>Exim</application> monitor program, as it requires
     114<application>X</application> Window System support, by commenting out the
     115<parameter>EXIM_MONITOR</parameter> line in the <filename>Makefile</filename>.
     116If you wish to build the monitor program, omit this <command>sed</command>
     117command and issue the following command before building the package (modify
     118<filename>Local/eximon.conf</filename>, if necessary):
     119<command>cp exim_monitor/EDITME Local/eximon.conf</command>.</para>
     120
     121<para><command>ln -s exim /usr/sbin/sendmail</command>: Creates a link to
     122<command>sendmail</command> for applications which need it.
     123<application>Exim</application> will accept most
     124<application>Sendmail</application> command-line options.</para>

     131<para>To utilize some or all of the dependency packages, you'll need to modify
