Comment: if you do bring sendmail up to date, particularly for 
security reasons, please strongly consider  adding SMTP AUTH and or 
SMTP-over-TLS to the default binary, for authentication reasons. 
Right now, getting either feature to compile into sendmail from 
pkgsrc is daunting. Having better authentication in sendmail from the 
beginning would be a Very Good Thing.
