[wp-hackers] anyway around wp hanging on install?

I came across an issue recently, if you don't have sendmail, exim, qmail, or
any smtp server installed, it hangs on the  2nd step where its trying to
send out the welcome email.

Anyway around this if the user/server doesn't have mail installed?

The install itself gets installed, it just hangs for about 5 mins while
trying to send the email, so if you wait long enough it will goto the last
step where it says to login.

Any ideas?
