Help with procmail mailing list

I need to find out for sure whether or not Solaris 10x86 comes with procmail installed? I only need it for mail subscription "Only"
WE have about 51 mailing lists subscriptions from listproc.
I need help just doing mailing lists.
How to best go about this?
I downloaded version for Solaris 10x86
We are running a listproc "old" version on Solaris 9 sparc, according to my app person she tells me that I can just transfer it over is this true?
I thought it was OS dependent.
We need the ability to do the auto-sub doesn't require anything fancy... just needs to allow
1) email-based subscriptions from a manager account
2) ability to track current and former subscribers of a list.
The latter was the one that was completely do-able in listproc but required a bit of a turn around the barn. I suspect it'll be easy in any newer application.
Any help would be appreciated

SMRSH(8)						      System Manager's Manual							  SMRSH(8)

NAME
smrsh - restricted shell for sendmail SYNOPSIS
smrsh -c command DESCRIPTION
The smrsh program is intended as a replacement for sh for use in the ``prog'' mailer in sendmail(8) configuration files. It sharply limits the commands that can be run using the ``|program'' syntax of sendmail in order to improve the over all security of your system. Briefly, even if a ``bad guy'' can get sendmail to run a program without going through an alias or forward file, smrsh limits the set of programs that he or she can execute. Briefly, smrsh limits programs to be in a single directory, by default /etc/smrsh, allowing the system administrator to choose the set of acceptable commands, and to the shell builtin commands ``exec'', ``exit'', and ``echo''. It also rejects any commands with the characters ``', `<', `>', `;', `$', `(', `)', ` ' (carriage return), or ` ' (newline) on the command line to prevent ``end run'' attacks. It allows ``||'' and ``&&'' to enable commands like: ``"|exec /usr/local/bin/filter || exit 75"'' Initial pathnames on programs are stripped, so forwarding to ``/usr/ucb/vacation'', ``/usr/bin/vacation'', ``/home/server/mydir/bin/vaca- tion'', and ``vacation'' all actually forward to ``/etc/smrsh/vacation''. System administrators should be conservative about populating the /etc/smrsh directory. For example, a reasonable additions is vaca- tion(1), and the like. No matter how brow-beaten you may be, never include any shell or shell-like program (such as perl(1)) in the /etc/smrsh directory. Note that this does not restrict the use of shell or perl scripts in the sm.bin directory (using the ``#!'' syntax); it simply disallows execution of arbitrary programs. Also, including mail filtering programs such as procmail(1) is a very bad idea. procmail(1) allows users to run arbitrary programs in their procmailrc(5). FILES
