We used to build sendmail with NO_WERROR.clang= to disable -Werror
specifically for clang, because there were some warnings that could not
be suppressed otherwise.  But since r246880 we reverted that workaround,
so this may be why you are now seeing these -Werror messages.

In any case, if you are pulling port headers into your buildworld, the
effect is not always predictable, as ports are largely independent from
base.  So if you need a customized build of sendmail, would it not be
better to use the mail/sendmail port instead?  There you can easily
enable all bells and whistles that are not enabled by default in base.
