% sudo make -C /usr/ports/mail/ssmtp install clean
===> Installing for ssmtp-2.64
===> Generating temporary packing list
===> Checking if mail/ssmtp already installed
===> Creating users and/or groups.
Using existing group `ssmtp'.
sSMTP has been installed successfully.

To replace sendmail with ssmtp type "make replace" or change
your /etc/mail/mailer.conf to:

sendmail /usr/local/sbin/ssmtp
send-mail /usr/local/sbin/ssmtp
mailq /usr/local/sbin/ssmtp
newaliases /usr/local/sbin/ssmtp
hoststat /usr/bin/true
purgestat /usr/bin/true

However, before you can use the program, you should copy the files
"revaliases.sample" and "ssmtp.conf.sample" in /usr/local/etc/ssmtp
to "revaliases" and "ssmtp.conf" respectively and edit them to suit
your needs.
===> Correct pkg-plist sequence to create group(s) and user(s)
===> Compressing manual pages for ssmtp-2.64
===> Registering installation for ssmtp-2.64
