In which case you're runnning a system with an old and vulnerable
version of sendmail.

Recommend you update as a matter of priority.

In order to generate the that you need, the command to use

    # cd /etc/mail
    # m4 -D_CF_DIR=/usr/share/sendmail/cf/ /usr/share/sendmail/cf/m4/cf.m4 >

assuming that you have a load of sendmail related .m4 files under
/usr/share/sendmail/cf -- you may have to substitute
/usr/src/contrib/sendmail/cf instead.

Then, once you're happy that it's generated a reasonable sendmail
configuration file, copy to and restart sendmail.
