I have been installing sendmail in accordance with the instructions in the 
help section of lfs.  when I try to start the service with 

/etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail restart

I get this:

Starting Sendmail... /etc/mail/ /usr/bin/m4: Cannot open 
/etc/mail/domain/generic.m4: No such file or directory
*** ERROR: No system type defined (use OSTYPE macro)
makemap: Need to recompile with -DNEWDB for hash support
554 5.0.0 /etc/mail/ line 134: readcf: map virtuser: class hash 
not available
554 5.0.0 /etc/mail/ line 137: readcf: map access: class hash 
not available

I don't really understand the sh Make commands used to install this package, 
but I have tried many combo's containing -DNEWDB, and I can't get it to 
work.  Any suggestions would be great.  Thank you
