This can be done only if you manage to upgrade Sendmail sources and
their build-glue manually, by following *exactly* the same process that
Gregory Shapiro (our native Sendmail maintainer) uses to do it.

You are also missing some parts of Sendmail above, like:


The upgrade process used by Gregory Shapiro and the normal 'buildworld'
cycle takes care of all that and more.

Why would you want to circumvent it, and risk breaking Sendmail?
