Bug#2875: smail install config script

You write:

}This is pretty much unavoidable with Smail.  Smail isn't capable of
}the kind of horrible hackery where you want `spong' to go to
}`spong@mailhost' but `root' to go to `root' locally.

Huh? Ian, I think here's a misunderstanding.

Smail sends mail

User: joey	To: joey	Goes to: joey
User: root	To: root	Goes to: root@mailhost

At least this is what happened here before I killed all the
Smail configuration that comes with Debian and installed my own from
scratch. (Or did I forgot the correct facts?)
