makemap expects to receive something via standard input (stdin); the 
proper invocation (and the one I included on my howto page) would be

   makemap hash /etc/mail/idealusers < /etc/mail/idealusers

You'll end up with a file /etc/mail/idealusers.db. If you've 
configured sendmail properly, there also ought to be line in 
/etc/mail/sendmail.cf that points to your file:

   Kgenerics hash /etc/mail/idealusers
