I need to use sendmail without MILTER.
However, Makefile is not sufficient to compile sendmail without MILTER.
Run make and use the SENDMAIL_WITHOUT_MILTER option.
At the end of the "do-configure:" section of the Makefile you need to add the following lines.

        ${ECHO_CMD} \
        'APPENDDEF(`conf_sendmail_ENVDEF'\'', `-DMILTER=0'\'')' \
                >> ${WCONF}/site.config.m4

I guess the port maintainer would understand exactly why the above lines are needed.
Sorry for not providing a patch file... I'm a newbie.
