  I tried this:

  richard@devzone:~/src/pkgsrc/mail/sendmail$ cvs diff
  Index: Makefile
  RCS file: /cvsroot/pkgsrc/mail/sendmail/Makefile,v
  retrieving revision 1.111
  diff -u -p -r1.111 Makefile
  --- Makefile 8 Oct 2012 12:19:30 -0000 1.111
  +++ Makefile 5 Dec 2012 17:34:30 -0000
  @@ -11,6 +11,7 @@ CONFLICTS+= esmtp>=1.2
    .include "../../mail/sendmail/Makefile.common"

    USE_TOOLS+= pax
  +USE_DESTDIR= full


  and it seemed to be able to package/install.

  I'll try some tests in the coming week to see if it really worked.
  strange that this hasn't come up before, unless nobody really uses the
  in time SU support for this package.

I should mention that USE_DESTDIR=yes did not work, only "full" did.
Also, it was quite surprising that I did a "bmake package" build and it went ahead and installed. That is, a subsequent "bmake install" is more or less a NOOP.

Finally, I notice that the package file has a couple of owner/group protection problems, as seen in this extract (+INSTALL/+DEINSTALL):
