Sendmail says that when /var/run/dcc/dccm or /var/run/dcc do not
have owners or permissions that it likes.

If you are not running dccm as root, you should build with
    ./configure --with-uiid=whatever

If permissions and ownerships are the problem, then I'd run 
    /var/dcc/libexec/updatedcc -c with-uid=whatever ...
