Have you added this to /etc/make.cnf?


That makes milter-greylist depend on the sendmail port, rather than the
base version of sendmail:

% cd /usr/ports/mail/milter-greylist

The mail/sendmail port is odd in that it changes package name depending
on what configuration options you select.  So if you go into
/usr/ports/mail/sendmail and:

# make config

You will be able to enable tls and sasl2 (amongst a whole bunch of other
stuff) giving you the correct functionality.

This should not result in the ports trying to reinstall sendmail
constantly, but it may confuse some tools that rely on the data in
/usr/ports/INDEX-N.  If that's a problem for you, then you will need
to build your own INDEX.  But it probably isn't.
