I don't recall you mentioning earlier that you were using FreeBSD.
If you installed postfix from the ports collection, there are
instructions displayed at the end of the install
(ports/mail/postfix/pkg-message) that tell how to disable sendmail.
This works quite well.
It's generally better to use the provided tools rather than fight the
system, something you may have to fight all over again next time you
apply system updates.
