It won't touch anything built from ports.

Yes, you can manually run mtree to recreate the directory structures  
for sendmail, then selectively run make on each of the sendmail  
components, then make install the program binaries, but it's a lot  
easier to just buildworld+installworld. That way you're guaranteed to  
get the same state as if you had just installed (which is what you  
asked for).
