That's not true. My mail prefered program has a runtime configuration
option to use another MTA but the default is "/usr/sbin/sendmail"
as specified in "/usr/include/paths.h". But I really don't want that
every user has to reconfigure the program to get it working. And I
neither want to recompile all the programs.

Programs only require a mailer frontend which understands some standard
options like "-oi", "-oem" or "-t".
