> Hi folks,
> I'm not sure how to handle the following situation: I want to use
> Postfix compiled from the official sources instead of any of the
> mail-mta/* packages. I removed mail-mta/ssmtp, which seems to be the
> default for my selected profile, but "emerge --update --deep world"
> reinstalls the ssmtp package, which renders my own Postfix unusable.
> On SuSE Linux, I have created a dummy SMTP service RPM to keep the
> YaST dependency checks for the "smtp_daemon" service satisfied. How
> can I satisfy Portage's dependency checks to keep it from installing
> any mail-mta/* package?
> I have not yet found relevant information in the forums or mailing
> list archives, but as I am new to Gentoo, I might not have worded my
> questions correctly, lacking the Gentoo specific terminology. Any
> pointers are welcome!
