I am attempting to upgrade to sendmail 8.12.1; platform is pmax running 
NetBSD 1.5.2

The software compiles without a problem and the daemon accepts email from
the outside just fine. When I attempt to send email I get an error messsage

drop_privileges: Unable to drop set-group-ID privileges

The sendmail web site states that if this message appears to compile with


I did that and still see the same problem. 

Sendmail provides a test script and it would seem to indicate that setgid
can reset the group id from a saved set.

Has anyone succeeded in installing sendmail 8.12.1? Would love to find out
what it took.
