smail upgrade, machine no longer accepts mail

I recently upgraded my smail to the new version (from 'stable', not the
deep frozen stuff) and my machine stopped accepting mail.  I think I found
the cause.  I found this in /etc/inetd.conf

# smtp    stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd
  (will be restored by smail postinst)

Uncommenting this line and rebooting put me back in business.  I guess
the smail postinstall script forgot to restore it.
