After making sure sendmail is not running, I added the following two lines
to /usr/lib/mail/cf/

DAEMON_OPTIONS(``Port=smtp, Addr=, Name=MTA'')dnl

Then I recompiled (/usr/ccs/bin/make) and changed the DS macro in the newly
created to point to my mail relay.  And finally I copied the new to /etc/mail/
