I usually do
make
make install
make stop
make start


after the first make, you should be able to diff the created .cf file
and the actuall sendmail.cf file. It doesnt actually install it, it just
creates a temp copy.


0(cage)# make
/usr/bin/m4 -D_CF_DIR_=/usr/share/sendmail/cf/
/usr/share/sendmail/cf/m4/cf.m4 cage.simianscience.com.mc >
cage.simianscience.com.cf
0(cage)# diff -u sendmail.cf cage.simianscience.com.cf
--- sendmail.cf 2011-04-20 15:32:46.000000000 -0400

Then a full stop and start after the install should get you what you want.
