I would say that mailx should use those paths if defined.  On NetBSD
this is /usr/sbin/sendmail which is a link to mailwrapper, so one can
use a pkgsrc MTA.

If paths.h doesn't define _PATH_SENDMAIL, then I guess the thing to do
is OS-specific "if FOOOS, then sendmail is /usr/bar/sendmail".

I realize this leaves you without a way to use mailwrapper on systems
that don't have it in base.  Perhaps we need a and
something else in mail/mailwrapper, that defines variables to point to
base if good enough, and if not depends on mailwrapper, and then mailx
and other MUAs should depend on that.
