Replacing Sendmail with Exim

I am running a FreeBSD 5.3 server, and installing exim with spamassassin. I have a customized exim configure file, but whenever I am using the file and try just a simple check of exim (exim -bt localuser), I get the error "failed to open /etc/ when checking "/etc/": No such file or directory". I want to make sure that whenever a program calls on sendmail it goes to Exim instead, are there any easy step to do this? I have changed the mailer.conf file to point to exim and the rc.conf file to disable sendmail. Is there anything else I need to change.

Thanks in advance.
