The question here is what should be done?

The copy of the mailer.conf in /etc shouldn't be removed, right?

As for /usr/libexec/sendmail, well I didn't want to try and get the
de-installation to put sendmail back as if it had been installed
directly into the system because that wouldn't necessarily be right, if
indeed it had ever been installed even.  I never installed sendmail on
the systems where I'm using the pkgmailwrapper binary package.  I only
wanted mailwrapper so that my smail package could be identical for both
1.3.x and -current (and I guess 1.4!) [note that my smail package
doesn't depend on pkgmailwrapper if it's built on an OS that's new
enough to already have mailwrapper installed].

Note also that this package forces itself to have PREFIX=/usr.  Perhaps
such packages should not be de-installable.  Certainly you can't
de-install the pkg_install package because it doesn't save copies of the
original binaries.  I don't think pkgmailwrapper need be any different
or better.
