If you're replacing the system sendmail with the version from ports,
then you need to update /etc/mail/mailer.conf -- something like this:
# $FreeBSD: stable/9/etc/mail/mailer.conf 93858 2002-04-05 04:25:14Z
# Execute the "real" sendmail program, named /usr/local/sbin/sendmail
Also, don't confuse the version of the sendmail from the config file
with the version in the binary -- both of them show up in the SMTP banner:
% telnet localhost smtp
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 smtp.infracaninophile.co.uk ESMTP Sendmail 8.14.5/8.14.5; Fri, 3 Aug
2012 09:34:40 +0100 (BST)
The first one is the version of the binaries, the second is the
configuration version, which you can easily change by modifying the
DZ8.14.5 line in sendmail.cf
