Programs invoke /usr/sbin/sendmail and pipe the mail to it.
There is a configuration file (/etc/mailer.conf) which tells the program
how to deal with mail. Typical setup:

sendmail        /usr/pkg/sbin/mini_sendmail -smail
send-mail       /usr/pkg/sbin/mini_sendmail -smail

which means that the pkgsrc mini_sendmail is invoked and told to forward
the mail vial smtp to host "mail".
