I compile in /usr/src/sendmail-8.11.0
I nfs-mounted /usr/src and /usr/obj to an a little older current (like
when I do a make installworld to the older machine)
I then compiled the same sourcedir with the same options, but now I got a
sendmail binary, which understands Berkley DB Hash file (version 2).
Then I could "./Build install" a working sendmail on the original machine.
Something on the original machine must trigger a wrong db type in sendmail
