Removing sendmail from an installed system

I'm removing sendmail entirely from an installed system. I had
WITHOUT_SENDMAIL in /etc/src.conf when I updated to RELENG_8_3, but that
left an old version of sendmail rotting away on disk. This is the list
I have so far:
/etc/mail/* (excluding mailer.conf)
Is this list complete? I'm intentionally leaving the stuff for
mailwrapper. I'm ok with leaving /etc/rc.d/sendmail behind as well, but
it looks like it's not needed by anything (i.e., nothing requires "mail").
Even though I have WITHOUT_SENDMAIL specified and the world was built
with that, mergemaster still installs /etc/mail/aliases and
/etc/rc.d/sendmail. Is there a way to prevent this other than adding
them to IGNORE_FILES in mergemasterrc?
