sendmail question

I'm trying to set up send mail to use authentication using this post I found. the problem is however when I try to compile it I don't get a sendmail-sasl-8.13.0-i486-2sub.tgz
file and I think it has to do with an error I receive while compiling that says "you should include "tar-1.13/" in PATH$" I'm not sure how to do this is there anyone out there that can tell me how? thanks

before going through a fresh compile check to see if your distro came with a sendmail already compiled with SMTP Auth.
Run /usr/sbin/sendmail -d0.1 -bv

and see if the output has STARTTLS and SASLv2. If you have then you need not recompile and reinstall, just enable the SMTP auth options in your mc file and generate your Certificates.

good recomendation

Thank you for that recommendation I ran what you told me to and both the sasl and starttls are in the list of compiled components so now I just need to take your suggestion and enable them in the mc file. I'm not sure how to do that so I guess it's just a little more home work for me. if anyone knows of a good place to find some information or could offer me some on here I would appreciate that very much.
