Actually you can use "make" to build the *.cf file in earlier versions of RedHat as well (notably the 7.x series). The working directory is different. Instead of /etc/mail, it's /usr/share/sendmail-cf/cf. The file located in this directory is a good place to start  (doesn't need a lot of changes), add your m4 macros, and then run make, and then cp /etc/

	That depends on the version of Red Hat being used. From 8.0 onwards moved to /etc/mail and will be made from by
	running "make" in that directory. Previous Red Hat versions (and the
	new Enterprise products) will need m4 running manually, as you said.
