Description of problem:
/etc/init.d/sendmail fails to start sm-client

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
/etc/init.d/sendmail start
/etc/init.d/sendmail stop

Actual Results:  
# /etc/init.d/sendmail start
Starting sendmail:                                         [  OK  ]
Starting sm-client:
# /etc/init.d/sendmail stop
Shutting down sendmail:                                    [  OK  ]
Shutting down sm-client:                                   [ FAIL ]

Expected Results:  
# /etc/init.d/sendmail start
Starting sendmail:                                         [  OK  ]
Starting sm-client:                                        [  OK  ]
# /etc/init.d/sendmail stop 
Shutting down sendmail:                                    [  OK  ]
Shutting down sm-client:                                   [  OK  ]

Additional info:

In /etc/init.d/sendmail, "--check sm-client" should be added to line 59.
=> daemon --check sm-client /usr/sbin/sendmail ....
So that sm-client can be started properly.

The line:
define(`confPID_FILE', `/var/run/sm-client.pid')dnl
should be added to /etc/mail/submit.mc and rebuild the submit.cf with
# m4 /usr/share/sendmail-cf/m4/cf.m4 /etc/mail/submit.mc > /etc/mail/submit.cf
so that sm-client can be shut down properly.
