Before compiling sendmail i installed DB, not the one in the book but a 
newer (4.1.24). In the archive i found this patch to compile sendmail 
with the new DB (some arguments changed in the new version). Here the

comiles and runs. But that's about everything. The makemap program 
doesn't work. This way sendmail is unable to generate db files from

track installed files) and with the db-4.0.14 everything runs okay.

Just to let you known.
