I don't think you need the above "define" if your .mc file already has
FEATURE (use_ct_file)dnl

The use_ct_file feature will add the proper tags in your .cf file for the
use of the trusted users file. BTW: It's the -o thats incorrect. (see below)

If you add the use_ct_file feature as shown above, then the reulting
sendmail.cf file will contain...

#####################
#   Trusted users   #
#####################
 
# this is equivalent to setting class "t"
Ft/etc/mail/trusted-users
Troot
Tdaemon
Tuucp

Note the difference in the trusted users line.

Good Luck
