Only two smaller problems:

- The mailq and newaliases symlinks in /usr/bin must not be part
  of the package, otherwise they potentially overwrite an existing
  configuration.  They are created by sendmail-config anyway, if
  the user chooses to run the script.

- Probably less important, but the other MTAs are installed into
  /usr/sbin, not into /usr/libexec.  Fedora installs the sendmail
  binary as /usr/sbin/sendmail.sendmail, analog to postfix, which
  is installed on Cygwin and Linux as /usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix.
  But that's not that important, as long as there's no collision.

Other than that, I think the package is GTG.
