Re: Changing the default for `send-mail-function'

    Why not just print a big message on standard output at the end of
    "make install" (or also at the beginning), like for example:

    "Attention: the default value of send-mail-function is now smtp.
     If you want emacs to make use of your local MTA, then please change
     line X in file Y."

`make install' produces lots of output; people are likely not to read
it closely.

To make this solution work, it would be necessary to make this
message stand out so people would notice it.
