[kwlug-disc] sarge -> etch: /etc/aliases.db issue

   ok, i have a request for assistance.  just did a dist upgrade from  
sarge to etch, almost everything went fine except for email not  
working because the regenerated aliases db file is actually called  
/etc/aliases.cdb, not aliases.db (that's what "newaliases" produces on  
this new system).  which causes postfix to freak and refuse to start  
since it's looking for /etc/aliases.db instead.

   i've always been used to /etc/aliases.db, so what is the proper  
approach to resolving this?  thanks.
