It always assumes it exists in /etc/mail/opendkim.conf (which is not the case on my system; sym linked it therefor). I think all the opendkim-* tools should follow the ./configure open --sysconfdir. In my case it is defined as --sysconfdir=/etc/opendkim.

Please don't understand it as negative critics please :) I enjoy opendkim and it makes fun to follow what is going on there :)

this is my first patch ever :)

It adds long-opts to opendkim-importstats. This way, all known opendkim-* tools that connect to SQL share the same long options. Maybe you like to review it and test it. I only work on Linux, so I have no idea, if that will work on other platforms as well.

Kind regards
