Actually, I think your perception is incorrect here.  If you want
sendmail-8.14.1 on a FreeBSD 6.x system, then installing it out of ports
really is the best and easiest way to go.  There's no need to overwrite
what the base system installs --  because of the way mailwrapper works,
/usr/sbin/sendmail will refer to the ports version automatically.

The ports version of sendmail is a pretty seamless drop in for the
system version. You don't even need to use the startup scripts the port
installs in /usr/local/etc/rc.d  Instead, if you add the following to
/etc/make.conf you can use the standard /etc/rc.d/sendmail start/stop
scripts and all the machinery in /etc/mail for turning .mc into .cf files:

   SENDMAIL_CF_DIR=        /usr/local/share/sendmail/cf
   MAKEMAP=                /usr/local/sbin/makemap

        Cheers,

        Matthew
