#1130 Sendmail M4 config reports error on Mac OS X

Don Pattee

I am attempting to use the "Sendmail M4 Configuration"
option. Once the page has loaded I am able to edit the
file, etc, but I am not able to rebuild it. Clicking
the "Rebuild Sendmail Configuration" button opens a
page that says "The command m4 needed for rebuilding
the Sendmail configuration file was not found on your

But, I know that I have M4 available, because I can
rebuild my configuration file when I ssh in to the box.

    Most likely the m4 command is in a directory that is not part
    of webmin's search path. Find out where it is located, then go
    to the Webmin Configuration module, click on Operating
    System and Environment and add that directory to
    the 'Program search path' field.

    Also, if this solves the problem please update this bug report
    with the path so that future versions of Webmin will include
    that directory by default.

    That did the trick. I needed to add /sw/bin to the search path.
