Hi karthik,

please note that opensmtpd is not maintained anymore on SBo and will soon
be removed: the version we have in the repo is, using Robby's words,
"insecurely out of date".

if you really want to build the version presently in the repo change this
line in the SlackBuild




but if you want to use it in production I suggest you to copy the script
somewhere and try managing updating it yourself...
