mention authenticated SMTP from ports in Sec 28.9

I've been using smtp auth, as per handbook
for years.

Lately I'm trying to move to binary updates on amd64,
which means not rebuilding parts of the world by hand.

So I installed mail/sendmail package which is
built with authentication support (sendmail+tls+sasl2-8.15.1).
I followed the config instructions at the end of the install
message and things seem to work fine.

I think it's worth mentioning, at the very beginning of
that using sendmail from ports is a convenient alternative to
these instructions.

Are there any downsides to using sendmail from ports
vs the OS sendmail?
