RedHat Linux 7.3 kernel 2.4.18-26-7.x Perl v5.6.1 libwwwperl-5.69 (1/24/2003) (compiled from source) /usr/lib/sendmail is hardcoded into This presents problems on a lot of modern systems because /usr/lib/ is a deprecated location for the sendmail binary on many systems, especially those that use another MTA but still provide a sendmail wrapper for compatability. It would be desirable for to look for the sendmail program (or it's compatible namesake) in multiple locations, for example: /usr/lib/sendmail /usr/sbin/sendmail /usr/ucblib/sendmail This would satisfy the dependencies of multiple architectures and mail transports. Mail::Mailer does it this way.
