Installing sendmail with the package user hint

Has anyone managed to install sendmail using the package user hint? I 
have been struggling with it off and on for sometime now trying to set 
the various DontBlameSendmail options but to no avail. The problem I get 
is that sendmail refuses to read the files in directories it deems 
unsafe. Virtually all directories it encounters fall in this category if 
the package user hint is used.

Am going to struggle a bit more with and and then finally move on to 
courier or exim. Any help with sendmail appreciated.
