Something severely wrong with your setup. It looks at several places for
sendmail and does not actually check if the program is a valid sendmail
or even executable, just that the file exists.
Not even sure where to start looking. I guess the following is a good start:
sh -c 'test -f /usr/sbin/sendmail && echo sendmail found'

If that works on the shell, take portupgrade out of the equation and run
make -C /usr/ports/mail/qpopper clean configure.

FWIW: rev 1.104 of mail/qpopper/Makefile works for me(tm), except for
the configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --with-apopuid
