Sendmail Config Issues

I'm running 6.2-RELEASE-p3. I'm having some issues configuring sendmail. I'm
new to sendmail, so please bear with me. I've read along
with some docs on I'm guessing I'm overlooking something, or
missing something completely.

I'm trying to sent up a sendmail config to send/receive mail locally, and
run smtp. My file is located at: and my file is at:
SENDMAIL_MC and SENDMAIL_SUBMIT_MC are set in make.conf to the full path to
those .mc files.

I also made changes to aliases, access, local-host-names, and virtusertable
in the /etc/mail dir.

When I run make in the /etc/mail dir, I get the following error:
# make
/usr/sbin/sendmail -bi -OAliasFile=/etc/mail/aliases
/etc/mail/ line 279: Unknown address family inet6 in
*** Error code 70

Stop in /etc/mail.

I disabled IPv6 in my kernel config, and I commented out in both the normal
mc file, and the submit file the information for ipv6, so I'm not sure
what's doing this.

Thanks in advance! If it wasn't for these mailing lists, I'd be back on
windows :-D
