Can yoiu take a look at the following patch please? It splits out
rc.d/sendmail into its constituent parts. I've split out the logic to
sort out conflicting options and rebuild the aliases database into a
separate file in /etc/mail/sendmail.subr. The rc.d scripts simply call
the appropriate routines in this file. In addition I've kept
rc.d/sendmail but added the nostart keyword.
