I just rebuilt my 4.8 test system and have no problem with
permissions/ownership on the /usr/local/etc/sasldb file as create by the

I used the same settings as you had posted in your previous message.
In your sendmail.cf file does the 'O DontBlameSendmail' option have a '#' in
front of it, if it does then it is being commented out. This may indicate
that the wrong *.cf file was installed on your system. What's the value of
the DontBlameSendmail option in the sendmail.cf file?
Are you using the freebsd.mc file, or a custom.mc file to create the *.cf
Also is the SENDMAIL_MC uncommented & defined to your custom.mc file in
/etc/make.conf file? As what most likely happened is that a mergemaster
installed the freebsd.cf file over your custom.cf file if you didn't have it
