That would be `/etc/make.conf'.

No, you probably want something similar to the way SASL2 support is
compiled into the base-system version of Sendmail.  In my `make.conf'
I have the following:

    SENDMAIL_CFLAGS=        -I/usr/local/include -DSASL=2
    SENDMAIL_LDFLAGS=       -L/usr/local/lib
    SENDMAIL_LDADD=         -lsasl2

While adding stuff to these variables please keep in mind that GCC on
FreeBSD has a major difference from the default GCC behavior: it does *not*
add /usr/local/include to the default include path or /usr/local/lib to the
default library search path.  So you will have to add them yourself, as
shown above.
