it doesn't make it setuid to root, that's still your job. the rc.d
script only tells you that it's wrong. rc.conf(5) says:
`YES' or `NO'. Asserts that sendmail is being used as a
setuid root binary and adjusts some precmd checks accord-
ingly. If this is set to `YES', you can remove the sub-
mit.cf file, and then turn off the smmsp process.
so i guess i oughta add something there about this, eh?
