I went through this on my rh7.3 box. It went easier than you might
expect. I got the sendmail-8.12.5-7 src rpm. As Hedemark pointed out, it
will fail compilation and dependency on db4. At this point I cheated. I
simply linked the db3 shared lib to the db4 name.
ln -s ../../lib/libdb-3.3.so libdb-4.0.so
The compilation went fine. I ran sendmail with milter support for quite
a while with no problem. I used the spamassassin milter with it. If this
is a production system, I would advise you NOT to do this. For home, it
I've since switched to postfix.
P.S. I still have the source rpm I used if you want it. I think I had to
tweak the spec file a little too.
