Not related to your patch, but related to sendmail and -current: What
about adding "define(`confSERVICE_SWITCH_FILE', `/etc/nsswitch.conf')"
as a default in -current? Or is this not needed and sendmail does this
by default even without this define?

And a little request for help: I have a problem on a -stable (post 4.10)
system. In the logs I see "Warning: .cf version level (10) exceeds
sendmail version 8.9.3 functionality (8)", at a time which seems to be
related to a periodic(8) run. But when I telnet to port 25 I get
"Sendmail 8.12.11/8.12.11". I verified, that contrib/sendmail is not
stale (I compared the output of "cvs status | grep Tag" of some C files
in contrib sendmail with the output of "cvs log"). I also can't find any
other sendmail binary (except the link to the mailwrapper in /usr/sbin).
The mailer.conf points to the correct sendmail binary.
/usr/share/sendmail/cf is also the same as contrib/sendmail/cf. Any idea
what I can check next?
