Yes, yes.  Pardon the mindslip.  I was sitting on a Solaris machine and
forgot we call our template file ``''.

I don't see a `hostname`.mc file here :-/

It seems you have no local `hostname`.mc file, so you probably lost some
changes in the mergemaster run of the update.  Can you check out the
differences of your ``/etc/mail/'' file and the one that is
part of the source tree, at ``/usr/src/etc/sendmail/'' ?
