Yeah, at first - when I realised I'd done that, I ran 'make setup
check'... When that failed, I tried 'make' (which worked), followed by
'make setup' (which didn't...).

Okay - at first, ran 'make clean', followed by these instructions, which
failed miserably (it occurs to me now that that's because I hadn't
noticed the period after ./make-install (it's late here, and I could use
more sleep at the *best* of times :-) )).

After that, I unpacked the source tree afresh, and did everything
c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y... and have met with success :-)

Just setting up the smtp auth'ing itself now, but it should all be
downhill from here - had simply deleted the /var/qmail/bin directory
before install the new one - nothing wrong with that? It's all running
well - came up straight away...

Thanks heaps for your help - I have a *very* nice little mail system now
(well, as soon as I *see* it requiring credentials to relay anyways...)
- now off to spend my days writing mail admin and user interfaces ;-)
