Off topic but sendmail help needed

Yeah, I believe it's 4.4 and I've been on this server for years. They are
supposed to take care of the upgrades but they never do. I would do it
myself but if anything goes wrong they charge to fix it and so I've pretty
much left it alone up until now. I'll probably end up switching providers in
a few weeks so I may have a shot at the upgrades next weekend.

That's really old.  And it's telling you the truth--it doesn't have an
"install" target.  This suggests that it's time to cvsup to 4.9, or at
least something later than what you have.  What release is it, maybe 4.4
or so?
