It shouldn't be there when the milter is dead, but it should be there
when it's just started, before sendmail is started.

Could be an "unsafe socket" problem; make sure that none of the
directories / /var /var/spf-milter are world-writable.

Jef's milter is called (surprise) spfmilter, and its home page is:
http://www.acme.com/software/spfmilter/

I have RPMs for it at:
http://www.city-fan.org/ftp/contrib/mail/

You'll also need libspf2, available at:
http://www.city-fan.org/ftp/contrib/libraries/

There is also a libspf-based RPM of a slightly older version (0.92) of
the milter, libspf-milter (requires libspf), also available at:
http://www.city-fan.org/ftp/contrib/libraries/
