Tripwire won't install without sendmail

    I have the latest version of MacPorts installed and am attempting to install Tripwire.  I do not have sendmail installed, but do have postfix.  Running Mac OS 10.4.10 Server.

    Here is the install Terminal window:

            HD:/opt/local/bin root# /opt/local/bin/port install tripwire
            --->  Staging tripwire into destroot
            Error: Target org.macports.destroot returned: shell command " cd "/opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_ports_security_tripwire/work/tripwire-" && make install DESTDIR=/opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_ports_security_tripwire/work/destroot " returned error 2
            Command output: make[3]: Nothing to be done for `install-data-am'.
            make[3]: Nothing to be done for `install-exec-am'.
            make[3]: Nothing to be done for `install-data-am'.
            make[2]: Nothing to be done for `install-exec-am'.
            make  install-data-hook
            prefix="/opt/local" sysconfdir="/opt/local/etc/tripwire" \                 path_to_vi="/usr/bin/vi" path_to_sendmail="" \                 ./install/ -n -f -s none -l none

            *** change TWMAILMETHOD to SMTP and set SMTP
            *** settings appropriately.
            make[3]: *** [install-data-hook] Error 1
            make[2]: *** [install-data-am] Error 2
            make[1]: *** [install-am] Error 2
            make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
            Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.

    The installer does not finish, so I'm not sure how I can change the TWMAILMETHOD to SMTP.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Jess

      I have encountered the same problem.

      This is a variable you are supposed to set : export TWMAILMETHOD=/path/to/sendmail
