It's gotta be a sendmail/php issue, however php was compiled with the same
exact configure options via config.nice.  I think someone already made a
module that does raw snmp.  

I think the php mail function definately sucks.  First of all, you can't
compile php with mail support unless it sees the sendmail binary.  Second
,if you're using anything other than windows, you can't specify a
remote mail server.  I don't like having to run a seperate mail server,
just for validation emails.  the mail function pretty much just opens
popen's the sendmail binary.  Raw smtp support SHOULD be standard in my
opinion.  You lose a lot of flexibility without it.  I'm just grateful the
problem is solved.
