The FHS dictates that a default system sendmail binary should be
located in /usr/sbin, not /usr/lib, and an optional symbolic link
should be made from /usr/lib/sendmail to /usr/sbin/sendmail for
For that reason, I suggest switching the order of directories in which
configure looks for a sendmail binary to put /usr/sbin before
/usr/lib; if a sendmail binary exists in both, then /usr/sbin is
probably the correct path to use (and therefore to suggest)...
