Thats because when sendmaail is started as a MSA, it needs to read 
access.db too and sendmail-msa runs as smmsp. This is why access.db is 
typically read-only by smmsp and in the comments just above the summary 
of permissions I explain that a milter user is created and added to the 
group smmsp.

"
Process user ``milter'' is primary member of group ``milter'' and 
secondary member of group ``smmsp''. Note that the milter should be 
started as root, so that it can create a .pid file and .socket file in 
/var/run; after which it will switch process ownership to milter:milter 
before starting the accept socket thread.
"

	make install

which runs install.sh takes care of all this. At least it should. The 
process was tested on an old RH Linux and OpenBSD by myself, and a 
FreeBSD by some others.
