Install and Configure DKIM on RHEL5

I have  recently installed DKIM-Milter package on RHEL5 and am looking for the next steps needed. I am struggling to find the configure script that I need to run according to documents needed to configure the server. I am assuming this is the next stage I need to follow to install the package ?
There seems many variations on steps needed and configuration files to be modified .
I would appreciate if someone has a generic or experience of a working install on RHEL5

packages seem to be installed/copied to the following locations

/etc/mail/dkim-milter
/etc/init.d/dkim-milter
/etc/sysconfig/dkim-milter
/usr/bin/dkim-milter
/var/run/dkim-milter

not sure if there is a script, you need to integrate the dkim into your mail server configuration. Which mail server do you have sendmail, postfix, exim, etc.

there should be documentation with the dkim-milter that deal with mail server configuration.

I am running senmail 8.13.8 which from all I have read should be fine. A few documents talk about running a configuaration script.
Is that all I need to do is configure configuration documents ?

Yes, there are scripts that you have to modify.
Unfortunately, I prefer other mailservers. Have a look at http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26219

I am having trouble finding the site.config.m4.dist
I also found a link :-
http://blog.nataprawira.com/tech/2009/08/15/how-to-manually-install-dkim-filter-with-sendmail/

Yet I cannot find anything about DKIM-MILTER  to install. It makes it seem very simple using that link aslo it is not.
I am also struggling to find the Build script. I am tested that it is installed by using "rpmfind.net" to search for DKIM-MILTER downloaded and install. It says already installed so I am happy that is correct.
Appreciate a new pointers.

Thanks

Yum search sendmail see if one of the returned options includes script/configure
Look in /usr/share/sendmail-cf
http://www.centos.org/docs/5/html/5.1/Deployment_Guide/s3-email-mta-sendmail-changes.html
Rpm -qa | grep -i 'sendmail'
rpm -ql <package name>
The -ql will little files and their location within the install package.  You could pass it to grep looking for m4

I am having trouble with C complier package installed and unless of have paid up support with RedHat  YUM will not allow me to update.
Due to this I am looking to install CentOS based on RedHats change in support of the product.

I have installed CentOS due to issues with RedHat and Support - yum and C Complier can be installed using YUM which then allows me to install/build DKIM-Milter

No one gave me a fix, the solution was to install CentOS which then allows me to install YUM and C Compiler (GCC) - redHat can not provide this ability unless you pay for support
