This looks like a typical problem after etcupdate from a writable

Go to gnu/usr.sbin/sendmail/cf/cf and check with cvs what's modified
or not present in the repository.  I don't remember if cf/cf is the
only affected subdirectory in gnu/usr.sbin/sendmail - so check it all
just in case.

Also, iirc, if that's inedeed etcupdate aftermath - there should be
more fallout waiting for you further in the build, but my memory is
hazy.  Probably MAKEDEV.

It might be a good idea to make cvs update and really pay attention to
the '?'s and 'M's.  May be even do cvs update -I \!  

PS: This question is asked repeatedly.  We should fix whatever causes
this lossage and add a FAQ entry for this lossage mode.
