1) Sendmail follows the general - configure, make, make install - but it needs some configuration before it can run.. It depends on procmail
2) the program's configure checks them, it's also easier for you to let it do the checking
3) as sendmail configuration affects some core system files, a package would not be easy (because of this you should also build on a traditional HD-install, to make all the changes stay)
4) With "vanilla" dsl, it's bon echo, which is 2.0 beta. However if you add gtk2, normal firefox will work (from the FF site, 220.127.116.11 is newest)
5) nope, most programs are from busybox, which doesn't include full implementations. Gnu-utils.dsl however replaces them with full ones..
When I talked about Sendmail configuration I meant it does not do it automatically, you need to add a "sendmail" user among other things yourself..
DSL was made small partly by using busybox, removing things not needed, and choosing smaller programs for a need (for example, monkey web server instead of Apache 'cause it's smaller)
There's no such thing as life. Those mean little jocks invented it ;)
