Could there be a space on line 66?  Sendmaili .mc files are picky about
spaces in blank lines.

(I just had a thought--maybe sendmail is complaining about line 66 of
the compiled .cf file? If so, the typo could be on any line of the
source .mc file.)

I successfully use vi to edit my sendmail .mc file.
