but with a little effort, you can find out a lot about SMTP, qmail and
so on, even if you don't understand everything right away.

Gentoo portage is a very nice way, to get around the DJB restrictions
for the qmail sourcecode. If you have the right ebuild (my brother
worked a lot on the official qmail ebuild), it will do all the patching
and compiling for you. For these "rare" cases, the portage system would
be of use in a suse environment. However doing the QA for this will be a
PITA for the SuSE team.
