Where does that page say this?
I don't see any reference to there.
Anyway, manually editing cf files was the way to go (and go mad :) a 
long time ago.
Now you edit ".mc"s and generate ".cf"s from those.

The first time you issue "cd /etc/mail ; make", it will generate 
{hostname}.cf, {hostname}.mc, {hostname} and {hostname}
You can then edit the two .mc files and issue "cd /etc/mail ; make install".
