did you try /etc/postinstall after you were done building? that
always helps a lot.

that's correct behavior. a "make install" will not install files into
/etc, since that has a high probability of overwriting files you are
expected to be able to modify freely.
have you modified your /etc/mail/sendmail.cf file at all, or did you
simply use the one that was originally installed?

well...you've found the step. i suppose you didn't find anything
telling you want to do next though. where did you look?
there are two sample submit.cf type files in /usr/share/sendmail/cf:
submit.cf and netbsd-msp.cf. if you don't see them there, cd to that
directory and make them (ie type "make submit.cf" or "make
netbsd-msp.cf"). copy one to /etc/mail/submit.cf.
>etcupdate didn't complain either.
hmm...never tried that.
