In other words, 2-clause BSD-style.
You need to add the text of that license to the documentation
(see clause 2), unless "make install" installs it.
And if it does, you should probably drop it in
/usr/share/licenses/mini-sendmail/


As a general rule:
If it says 'custom', you should (and probably need to) install a copy of
the license.
Unless you have something under WTFPL, CC0, unlicense, 'copy as you can',
or similar, the license probably requires including it in the docs.

Thanks,
Isaac
