Are you sure you have the latest sendmail package?  There was a
version release just before Christmas that had a bug which fails
precisely the same way on sparc architectures.  The current
version is:

(2384863 bytes, md5sum aca820319c20802e46d4d2cfe190e908)

This one installed correctly on my machine.

Perhaps you should try another mirror, or if you can't find it
elsewhere, write me and I'll make a copy available to you.
