Problems with StartTLS and make in /etc/sendmail

Problems with StartTLS and make in /etc/sendmail


I desperately need help to get my sendmail configuration working again.

I followed this guide:
to enable TLS and AUTH in sendmail and now I get an error I just cannot find any information about on the great wise internet.

server:/etc/mail# make
make: *** No rule to make target `/etc/mail/tls/starttls.m4′', needed by `/etc/mail/databases'. Stop.

I can find no reference anywhere on how to solve it and when I check my Makefile it seems to me (I'm have very little knowledge about Makefiles) that everything should be OK in it.

Please please help me!
