    sendmail transition: Do not pre-generate
    Originally a starter file was created using the .mc template
    files and the m4 files installed from contrib/sendmail-8.14 directory.
    This starter was installed with "make distribution".  The
    template files were only changed with "make upgrade" (not sure why but
    maybe people tried editing them directly) and the Makefile was only
    installed once.
    This commit accomplishes these things:
      * No or file is created.  This was the last
        user of contrib/sendmail-8.14
      * etc/sendmail was altered to just install files
      * the README file the was recently placed in libexec/dma was relocated
        to etc/sendmail and updated
      * the /etc/mail/Makefile is now updated with installworld
      * the dragonfl*.mc templates are now updated with installworld
    The suggested method to creating /etc/mail/ and
    /etc/mail/ now on a new system is:
      1. cd /etc/mail
      2. type "make cf"
      3. <optional> edit new <hostname>.mc and <hostname> files
      4. <optional> type "make cf" again
      5. type "make install"
