Default sendmail trb post update wrld and jump to openrc

Following a recent jump from pre openrc to post openrc via emerge -vuD
world, sendmail is now failing to authenticate with my Smart host.

I'll say in advance that I am not interested in switching MTAs for the
inevitable suggestions to switch to a different MTA.

Far as I know nothing has changed with my Smart Host... (comcast.net)
and I haven't changed any sendmail config files.

But following along with the smtp conversation with mail -v I see my
messages meet a hefty pause at the point were my machine shakes hands
with the smtp.comcast.net server. (The output is inlined at the end).

There is no mention of authentication failing it just says the
connection is `deferred' and then times out.

Sendmail-8.14.2 here

You can see from output below that the message makes it past my local
submit agent and then following the line that says:
354 Enter mail, end with "." on a line by itself
>>> .
The connection is deferred and then times out.
