I guess I should stop checking the FreeBSD web-site for what is in the
ports; because, like you said, the FTP server had the new sendmail 8.12.8. I
only had to use my own .mc file; and voila, I had a brand new sendmail. :)
Fully functional, with all the trimmies I had previously added.

Man, this went astoundingly easy. :) I saw 8.12.8 is actually logging a bit
more verbose, like when I rebuilt the alias and access database (there had
been reports of problems in that area, so I tested it), sendmail put a
message in /var/log/messages to inform me. Maybe that has always been there,
lol, but I had never seen that before.

At any rate, I am very happy the way this upgrade went. :)
