I think the real sendmail is at /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail, not
/usr/sbin/sendmail, which points to mailwrapper

if you want to continue to use postfix, try re-installing the postfix port,
it should fix it. (i haven't used postfix myself, but looks like the
pkg-install script would take care of replacing the sendmail setup)
if you don't want sendmail to be installed when you do a make world, put the
following line in /etc/make.conf:
