Description of problem:
sendmail-8.12.x recommends creating the smmsp user and group with uid and gid 
25 (obviously because it matches the well-known smtp port).
Redhat Linux has traditionally used 25 as the uid/gid for named.
Maybe it should set to it 53 instead, so that smmsp can use the recommended 
uid/gid 25 ?
I think it's a great idea to use the well known port for the user of basic 
services like mail, DNS, http, ftp since it avoids such conflicts and will help 
with consistency across different systems.
