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.
