Hmmm, it looks like your `sendmail.cf' has been overwritten by an
unexpanded copy of `sendmail.mc'.  What do you see with:

    % diff -u /etc/mail/freebsd.mc /etc/mail/sendmail.cf

If this shows only a few lines of local changes, then you should keep a
backup copy of the current `/etc/mail/sendmail.cf' file and then try to
macro-expand it with the `/etc/mail/Makefile' machinery to generate a
real `sendmail.cf' file...
