Unless you've modified your local meaning of "locate", all that command
really does is show you that libmilter was there the last time the database
was updated.  While there still could be some problem with configure (or as
someone else alluded to, the library search path), locate doesn't carry much
weight to show that something is there.

Having just gone through this process to upgrade to sendmail 8.12.8, I was a
bit annoyed to have to look in *two* :) different places to find all of the
appropriate instructions- specifically, sendmail-8.12.8/devtools/Site/README
instructs you to do a "./Build -c" from the top level after adding the right
line to site.config.m4, otherwise your m4 file will not be used. 

I'd think that you would then need to do the "Build" and "Build install" in
libmilter first, before doing the Build in the top level.
