Check if your sendmail supports the GroupReadableSASLDBFile option with:

# strings /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail | grep groupreadablesasldbfile

Did you at some point install one of the mail/sendmail ports? If you did,
then it might be possible that your still using the ports sendmail binary
and not the binary from the installworld.  Check /etc/mail/mailer.conf:

sendmail        /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail
send-mail       /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail
mailq           /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail
newaliases      /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail
hoststat        /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail
purgestat       /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail

Is /usr/sbin/sendmail a link to /usr/sbin/mailwrapper?
