What is the /etc/make.conf entry to do this?

For milter-sender (and any of my other milters using cache/access 
databases), you must build Sendmail and the milters with the same 
version of Berkely DB. As I understood in an email from Keith Bostic on 
the matter, newer versions of Berkely DB can not read BDB 1.85 file 
format, so applications that must access the same database, must be 
linked with the same BDB library.

I've CC'ed Kieth on this for confirmation, which I'll forward to the 
list for the record later.
