Is there any reason to not have the binaries in /usr/sbin ?

And can you add a /usr/sbin/sendmail symlink so any
applications looking for it at compile or run time find it ?

Example:

Lynx's configure.in:

CF_DEFINE_PROG(system mailer, SYSTEM_MAIL,
        /usr/mmdf/bin/submit \
        /usr/sbin/sendmail \
        /usr/lib/sendmail  \
        )
CF_SYSTEM_MAIL_FLAGS
if test -n "$SYSTEM_MAIL" ; then
if test $with_full_paths = no ; then
        SYSTEM_MAIL=`basename $SYSTEM_MAIL`
fi
fi

userdefs.h:

#define SYSTEM_MAIL "sendmail"
#define SYSTEM_MAIL_FLAGS "-t -oi"

If it can't find the sendmail binary at compile time you have
to edit lynx.cfg. Not a problem, but it can be avoided. And
since both are part of Cygwin...
