Bug#4203: sendmail does not install if /usr/sbin/sendmail does not exist?

Package: sendmail
Version: 8.7.5-4

marin38# dpkg -i sendmail_8.7.5-4.deb 
(Reading database ... 22224 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace sendmail (using sendmail_8.7.5-4.deb) ...
start-stop-daemon: unable to stat executable `/usr/sbin/sendmail': No such file 
or directory
dpkg: error processing sendmail_8.7.5-4.deb (--install):
 subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit status 2
Errors were encountered while processing:

Apparently the install fails because the installation script is run with
-e set. If I touch /usr/sbin/sendmail, it installs fine.
