I would like to upgrade sendmail from the ports collections. However, I have been using sendmail 8.12.6 from the base install of freebsd 4.6.2 release and I believe that installing sendmail from the ports collection will add files to
/usr/local rather then /usr where sendmail is currently located. From the research I've done after I install sendmail from the ports collection, I will need to add the following lines to sendmail.mc file:

define(`confEBINDIR', `/usr/local/libexec')dnl
define(`UUCP_MAILER_PATH', `/usr/local/bin/uux')dnl

as well as change the mailer.conf file.

Am I missing any other steps? Any help would be greatly appreciated since this is my first attempt at upgrading sendmail.

Thank you,

I'm also running 8.11.6. I installed the correct patch from sendmail.org
but haven't figured out how to get it to compile. The README says:

!! DO NOT USE MAKE !! in this directory to compile sendmail --
********************* instead, use the "Build" script located in
the sendmail directory.

However, there is no "Build" script.

Now what?
