I qualified my statement that /usr/lib/sendmail exists. If you're running
on a.n.other system then I wouldn't want to mislead you about the presence
(or otherwise) of an MTA.

It's been /usr/lib/sendmail for as far back as I can remember. (Mid
'80s?) On my exim based system it's a symlink. I would expect that other
non-sendmail MTAs did the same. (Postfix, anyone?)
