sendmail: no local mailer

Sendmail has not been working on my system for some time now. I can't say 
exactly how long, but my guess is that it broke when I upgraded to 
RELENG_5_0. This is how sendmail is invoked (by default) and it's output.

# sendmail -L sm-mta -bd -q30m -ODaemonPortOptions=Addr=localhost
451 4.0.0 No local mailer defined: Bad address
554 5.0.0 QueueDirectory (Q) option must be set

The same thing happens if I change "localhost" to "". I suspect 
that the second error (554) will disappear when I get rid of the first one 
(451). Does anyone know why it might be misbehaving like this?
