I spoke with sendmail-2010(Claus Assmann) and was given a new idea as to
how to set these options.  This is what was pointed out for CentOS54:

define(`LOCAL_MAILER_FLAGS', `rhqSu')
`/usr/share/doc/mailman-2.1.9/contrib/mm-handler, U=mailman:mail')
define(`LOCAL_MAILER_ARGS', `mm-handler $h $u')
MAILER(`local', )dnl

chmod ug+x /usr/share/doc/mailman-2.1.9/contrib/mm-handler*
chown root:mail /usr/share/doc/mailman-2.1.9/contrib/mm-handler*

I'm unsure still what all of these options do, but I'm told that these
options will generate a Mlocal that matches what I'm using.

I hope this helps future sendmail users.
