It looks like the c library calls themselves used in the sendmail source
look in the system password file (getpwuid, getpwnam, etc.)
So you'd probably have to rewrite the source to do this.
Just a guess.
A good tip on what you are able to do (and not do) with the sendmail.cf is
in the $SENDMAIL/cf/README file.
