My goal is to make sendmail accept connections over IPv6.
ok, this is the diff from after my edit:

I ran m4 and copied the file to /etc/mail/:
root@computer-compaq:/usr/share/sendmail/cf/cf# m4 sendmail-slackware-ipv6.mc > ../../sendmail-slackware-ipv6.cf
root@computer-compaq:/usr/share/sendmail/cf/cf# cp /usr/share/sendmail/sendmail-slackware-ipv6.cf /etc/mail/sendmail.cf

It doesn't listen to IPv6.
Doesn't sendmail support IPv6 by default on slackware? How can I check that?
Do I have to modify some other configuration file? Which one?
