SUMMARY: "makemap" on sendmail 8.9.3

Solaris doesn't support berkely hash database by default.
Change to 'dbm' will works.

FEATURE ('access_db', 'dbm -o /etc/mail/access')
# makemap dbm /etc/mail/access < /etc/mail/access

Or, get berkelydb, compile it then compile makemap using berkelydb.

I'm making file on Solaris 2.6
One of the FEATURE I added to is:
FEATURE ('access_db', 'hash -o /etc/mail/access')

Then I create a /etc/mail/access file and run
# makemap hash /etc/mail/access < /etc/mail/access
makemap: Type hash not supported in this version

The "makemap" is compiled with sendmail, and man page
show 'hash' option but why command line got problem?
