SPF Startup and P5-Mail-SPF-Query

I am a little confused about starting Sender Policy Framework on 
FreeBSD.  One doc in samples/ says the milter "will plug right in." 
Some docs say you don't need to run spfd.  Other docs say you need to 
run sendmail-milter.pl but that script isn't in the packing list.  One 
doc states I should edit my sendmail rc script to start and stop spf-milter.

I would have thought that this milter would be started much like 

I have modified my sendmail.cf.  When I start sendmail I get the error:
WARNING: Xspf-milter: local socket name /var/spf-milter/spf-milter.sock 

How do I run SPF using p5-Mail-SPF-Query?  Where is the startup script?
