I ran into the same problem years ago, with sendmail from ports
installing into the /usr/local path, and creating two different versions
on the same system, and generally making a Big Mess of itself.
But from some posts here a couple months ago, and reading the Makefile,
I ~THINK~ it [the port] is now set up to replace the stock sendmail and
install into the regular system paths.
I'm only like 90% on this, but hopefully someone else will confirm: I
think the port will do what you want.
