SunOS-5. has only /usr/lib/sendmail
IRIX-6. has only /usr/lib/sendmail
ReliantUNIX has only /usr/sbin/sendmail
RedHat-Linux has /usr/sbin/sendmail and a softlink in /usr/lib/sendmail
My private Linux (no distribution) has only /usr/sbin/sendmail
I think it's worth to change the search-order because it shouldn't hurt
"normal" systems and it's better for systems which use a softlink
in /usr/lib/sendmail for historical reasons.
