A couple of things:
Have a look at how ./Install handles the pass phrase input and other
user-defined variables. We want to be able to handle that in a similarly
We need to test for the required libraries (ncurses, OpenSSL). I'd also
like to stop shipping pcre and zlib with Mixmaster -- so we'll need to
test for them and point the user to where he can get htem if they aren't
installed on the system.
We need to create the proper files under the different installation
scenarios -- client only, middleman remailer, full remailer. We have to be
considerate of upgrades vs. new installations also -- don't overwrite
existing important files.
Other than that, I can't see any other gotcha's. Am I missing anything?
