	The default location of the smrsh command directory (which contains
	binaries that sendmail is allowed to run via the "prog" mailer) in
	the source from sendmail is /usr/adm/bin, which is nonexistent
	on NetBSD (and many other) systems.  The smrsh.c source file will
	change the compiled-in command directory if the preprocessor symbols
	CMDDIR or SMRSH_CMDDIR are defined, and the pkg Makefile attempts to
	do this by setting:

	  SMRSH_CMDDIR?=  ${PREFIX}/libexec/sm.bin

	However, this never gets to the cc command line, so the default is
	used, and the sendmail prog mailer fails to work.

	Install the mail/sendmail package and

	  strings /usr/pkg/libexec/sendmail/smrsh | grep sm.bin

	The result is


	Also, if you look at the build log, you'll see that smrsh.c was
	compiled without any mention of SMRSH_CMDDIR on the command line:

	  cc -O -I. -I../../sendmail   -I../../include -DNEWDB -DNIS -DMAP_REGEX  -DNETISO -I/usr/pkg/include -DTCPWRAPPERS -DNOT_SENDMAIL  -I/usr/include -c smrsh.c

	Unknown.  A quick and dirty workaround is to extract the source
	and patch smrsh.c.

	FWIW: This was reported in pkg/21012 back in April of 2003 and
	ostensibly fixed in September of 2003.  I'm not sure if it wasn't
	really fixed then or has regressed.  It might be worthwhile to
	put in a post-build check to verify that the compiled-in value
	matches the value of ${SMRSH_CMDDIR}.
