            Bug ID: 237821
           Summary: /usr/bin/mail: path to sendmail hard coded
           Product: Base System
           Version: 12.0-RELEASE
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin
          Assignee: bugs at FreeBSD.org

It seems that the path to the sendmail binary is hardcoded in the mail binary:

# echo test | mail -s test root
mail: /usr/sbin/sendmail: No such file or directory

l /usr/local/sbin/sendmail
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel    30K May 10 10:32 /usr/local/sbin/sendmail*

This system does not have sendmail but postfix from ports installed.
